IPCO STEEL BELTS AND PROCESS SYSTEMS AT THE HEART OF EVERYDAY LIFE
Our name, IPCO, reflects our position as a world-leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance industrial process systems.
Throughput our history we have worked with innovative companies to develop solutions that deliver a competitive edge.
In 1901 we produced the world’s first steel belt and the inherent properties of this conveying medium – flatness, durability, thermal transfer and ease of cleaning – opened the door to the development of a world of new industrial processes.
Today there are literally thousands of different products – foods, chemicals, construction materials, automotive parts and many, many more – that owe their existence in part at least to an IPCO product or system.
Our steel belts have been used in wind tunnels to test the aerodynamics of Formula One cars; there are sea waters that are cleaner thanks to the use of our oil skimmers; and in the 1920s, we designed a magazine sorting solution based on a steel belt studded with fiber pins.
Our conveying equipment has been used to carry everything from car parts, parcels and iron ore to soap, cycle saddles and even people (our Movator system transported its first passengers at Châtelet Métro station, Paris in 1964).
However, it is for industrial processes such as pressing, cooling, forming, freezing, casting and laminating that we are best known. And the extraordinary scope of these applications means it’s unlikely that any one of us goes a day without coming into contact with a product that was processed, in some form or another, on IPCO equipment.
From food to flooring, from cars to construction, IPCO – the industrial process solutions company is at the heart of everything.
