IPCO Test and demo centre
IPCO’s test and demo center near Stuttgart/Germany

At IPCO’s center of excellence, a 1600 sq.m. test and demo center near Stuttgart/Germany, a full range of processes can be assessed, from consolidation / calibration, lamination and impregnation, to tempering and cooling. Applications include consolidation of pre-laminated sheets and impregnation of fibers with resin. Resin can also be applied in powder, film or liquid form onto a non-woven or felt material. 

A complete set of pilot systems, including a recently installed ThermoPress SB steel belt line, a ThermoPress TB (Teflon®) and a CB (Combi) unit,enables IPCO and its partners and customers to co-operate on the research and development of thermoplastic composite materials and produce prototypes scalable to production size. This in turn provides the process data needed to design high productivity commercial-scale solutions.                                                                                                                    

ScatterPro precision scattering for composites 

Complementing the ThermoPress range, IPCO manufacturers a range of high precision scattering systems that can be incorporated into production lines to scatter powder, granulate or fibers. 

These systems are used to achieve uniform scattering of various materials used in the manufacture of products for the automotive, textile, recycling / sustainable composites,and construction industries. A modular design allows multiple stages to be incorporated into one continuous process.
