IPCO is one of the world’s leading suppliers of steel-belt based cooling and solidification systems. These systems have been used in powder coating production for many years. Complementing this, we are also able to offer a range of advanced twin screw extrusion systems, enabling us to design and deliver integrated powder paint production lines. These lines are encompassing everything from feeding and extrusion to cooling and downstream handling.
Meeting the global demand for environmentally-friendly powder paint
There is an increasing global demand for driving a reduction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) commonly used in liquid paints. Powder paints however provide a clean and attractive alternative to VOCs with virtually no atmospheric pollution, safe storage and handling and low fire hazard. For this reason, the market for powder coatings is rapidly expanding. Our integrated powder paint systems ensure an efficient, low-energy consuming and environmentally friendly operation.

Global support ensures maximum productivity
With operations in more than 130 countries worldwide we can provide a genuinely global service. We cover everything from installation and commissioning to in-house training, repairs and spare parts. Our services include “best practice” maintenance training for in-house teams, tailored support packages designed to resolve potential issues before they impact on production, scheduled maintenance visits and spare parts held on site. Also, we have a global network of trained and qualified engineers who can respond to requirements anywhere in the world.
Customers can easily adjust this versatile unit to meet precise production needs. It can be set to a fixed position or attached to a sliding guide fixed to the extruder’s frame, allow it to be moved for easy cleaning. The screw profile will be defined according to humidity and bulk density of powder.
Twin screw extruders
The extruder is key to the quality of end product. Our units offer a number of major advantages, the most important of which being its split design, allowing fast and easy access for colour changes and cleaning operations.
Cooling and flaking systems
We offer a choice of cooling/solidification solutions based on steel belt or plastic belt technology. The steel belt delivers significant advantages in terms of durability and ease of cleaning, while the plastic belt enables the design of more compact systems for installations where space is at a premium
