  • IMCAR produces plate bending machines with and without Numerical Control, 2/3/4 rolls for thicknesses from 0.4 mm to 80 mm and useful lengths from 500 mm to 6000 mm, including the version with 3 rolls and variable geometry; automatic systems from coils or pallets according to customer requirements; custom bending machines for different types of sheets and profiles, as well as profile bending machines with single and double pre-bending, able to work on both horizontal and vertical axes.
    Moreover, there are always developments in the field of vertical installations for the production of tanks for numerous applications: food, chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic sectors (wine, milk, beer, fruit juice, chemical liquids etc.). Thanks to this technology it is possible to manufacture tanks and, to complete, IMCAR also produces all accessory machines, that is to say: shearing and flanging machines for the formation of roofs and bottoms, press for the production of support legs for tanks, cooling systems with half-pipe, etc., thus obtaining an excellent finished product.

    The evolution of vertical installations for production of tanks never ends: starting with first station, this technology enables the production of tanks from coils or plates in the most efficient and expedient methods, following the subsequent operations of feeding the plate, bending, cutting, welding, surface cleaning until completion of the shell, all processes with just one/two operators needed.

    Field productionThen with second station customer can couple one shell over the other letting, with just one machine, process  the following steps:

    • Circular alignment of pipes without use of rings, which is processed during manual spot-welding process
    • Automatic circular welding of shells with internal copper and gas support in order to simplify setting of welding parameters and grant a better welding penetration
    • Circular welding compression to avoid barrel effect and reduce thickness of welding material
    • Internal and external welds cleaning

    All above mentioned processes with just one operator needed.

    Moreover, working in vertical, some safety risks encountered in traditional horizontal production are avoided, because operators always work on the ground, as the shell forming and assembling processes occur from the top to down, lifting the already finished shell and adding the other ones beneath till completion of the body of tank.

    This Technology is a turnkey solution devoted to achieve high level quality of manufacture, offering to the customers the best methods related to efficacy and efficiency.
