The company also supplies innovative press and scattering solutions for the production of composite materials. An independent company owned by FAM AB, part of the Swedish Wallenberg Group, IPCO has 600 employees and more than 30 sales and service offices worldwide. This network of regional offices provides local, on-the-ground expertise backed up by a global service organisation.

Film casting with Venturi Drying

IPCO has developed a continuous film casting system incorporating an innovative Venturi drying module for the production of very thin films to fine tolerances. A slot die applies the liquid product directly onto a polished stainless steel belt, which then passes through controlled drying segments where the solvent in the liquid is evaporated.

As well as dry film casting to 10-300 μm, the process can also be used to produce high-quality microporous membranes. Applications include the production of separator membranes and ceramic tapes used in Li-ion batteries, fuel cells and solid-state batteries.

Further solutions to be showcased by IPCO at Achema include extrusion and cooling systems for powder coating and Rotoform, the company’s flagship chemical solidification system with more than 2500 lines installed worldwide.
