Precision film casting, granulation and scattering systems for processing of pharmaceutical and medical products.
High productivity process solutions for the pharma and medical industries
Our process systems have been used and trusted by the chemical and healthcare industries for decades and are now increasingly used for the production of quality- and hygiene-critical pharmaceutical and medical products.
Developing and adapting our technologies to meet the specific requirements of these industries means we understand your business needs and the importance of GMP and/or FDA compliance.
Our close partnership with businesses like yours – in particular through R&D work at our Productivity Centers – means that product development is a constant process and new applications are emerging all the time. Below are just some of the applications for our current technologies, but please contact your local IPCO office if you would like to work with us to look at new opportunities.
Our global reach brings you a wealth of experience and knowledge in film, foil and membrane casting, as well as cooling and drying equipment. With a presence in over 35 countries, our teams and technicians are ready to provide expert advice and rapid servicing.
GMP-compliant, high precision and outstanding reliability
IPCO has developed a continuous film casting system that dramatically improves the casting process, enabling the production of film products to exceptionally narrow tolerances.
Our high-polish steel belts can help you manufacture high-quality films and membranes for use in the medical and pharmaceutical industries:
Nanocellulose – wound care
Soluble polymers – pharmaceutical capsules, pills
Membrane – for vaccine and mRNA tests.
Our film casting systems ensures GMP-compliant design, high standards of precision, and outstanding reliability.
Continuous, high-rate production
IPCO technology ensures an efficient, continuous production, with precise tolerances for membrane thickness and flatness, as well as uniform conditions for the phase separation process, considering temperature and humidity variables. The resulting film has a consistent and uniform structure.
IPCO can design and manufacture complete lines for the production of varying types of film and membrane products. Our products are also compatible with other technologies and products.
Test your production in our Productivity Center
IPCO has introduced a new film casting pilot plant in our Productivity Center to help you test your new products and innovations. With a belt width of 700mm, a maximum coating width of 500mm and advanced drying capabilities, you can see the entire process firsthand.
IPCO’s film casting units give you ultra-efficient continuous production to cast very thin films to fine tolerances. This process can be used to produce microporous membranes of a quality unattainable by any other method.”
