IBC (Large Container for Bulk) containers are essential equipment in the industrial sector for the storage, process and transport of liquid or powdery raw materials. Their manufacture requires a careful approach to ensure the quality and safety of the final products.
Step 1: Material Selection
The first step in the manufacture of IBC containers is to choose the appropriate material according to the use (chemistry, food, cosmetics, etc.). Generally, they are made of steel or stainless steel, sometimes aluminum. These materials offer high resistance to product contact and impact.
Step 2: Design and Cut
Once the materials have been selected, the design of the IBC container is carried out by the design office. Dimensions, volume and accessories are defined. Then, according to the plans of the design office, the parts of the container are precisely cut using specialized machines.
Step 3: Assembly
Assembly is a crucial step in the manufacture of IBC containers. The different parts of the container are assembled in such a way as to guarantee a total tightness and an optimal solidity. Quality control tests are performed at this stage to ensure product compliance.
Step 4: Finishing
In the last step, we finish with the finishes. This is the assembly of accessories: valve, lid, caps, chains, stickers, electrochemical engraving, ADR plate, customer plate etc.
The manufacture of IBC containers requires technical know-how and special attention to each step of the process. By following these steps, we obtain IBC containers of superior quality, meeting the standards of safety and efficiency.
