World-class manufacturing capability
IPCO steel belts are the result of more than 100 years’ manufacturing experience. Every belt is manufactured to precise specifications to ensure that it delivers the performance, durability and reliability of service associated with our name.
We produce belts of all sizes in different grades to suit different processes. They can be supplied in carbon or stainless steel, and in either solid or perforated form, depending on the needs of the product to be processed. We work continuously to improve the tolerances we can offer – thickness deviation, flatness and straightness – and our ability to meet demanding delivery schedules.

Similarly, if you’re a bake oven manufacturer looking to develop a new bake oven system, our help and advice is readily available.
