IPCO double belt presses can incorporate a module that uses heated or cooled sliding shoes to deliver highly efficient heat transfer. The applied pressure is minimal (minimising wear of the steel belt and platens) so sliding shoe technology is used in combination with other press modules.

Typical applications for IPCO double belt presses with sliding shoe technology:

  • Isochoric and isobaric applications
  • Flooring
  • Wood plastic composites
  • Thermoplastic laminates
  • Low pressure applications (up to 0.5 bar)
  • Flexible circuit boards
