Siptec SIP Manufacturing Machinery

For the Production of all types of SIP Panel.

The range consist’s of

The Siptec Pneumatic Laminating Press  a 3 meter Multi Stacking double end feed  Sip Panel  processing Press for production of EPS & other low cost laminated cored panels.

The Siptec 3 meter double end loading hydraulic stacking press, this press can produce 6, 150 mm panels per cycle and is probably the best production solution with the highest throughput available.

The Siptec 6.5 meter 2+2 double end loading press with dual scissor lift end feed tables and aluminium platens.

High Output Foam Injection plants produced to Siptec specification in Italy by one of the worlds leading PUR processing plant manufacturers. Any type of Foam  Plants can be supplied as part of a Licensing package, The Siptec Machines are true state of the art, fitted magnetic couplings, auto loading of chemical component, automatic temperature control and very high output to ensure efficient fast fill of the panel production. Price is very competative and machines all carry 12 months makers guarantee.

Siptec PUR Processing  plants are available in either High Pressure, HP or Low Pressure, LP configuration. The latter is circa half the price of a HP Machine

We do not and will not supply or entertain foam Plants from China, Korea or  Far East supplier’s.

 SIPTEC HISTORY & PRESS DEVELOPMENT

Development of SIP production machines started over 30 years ago, the first Sips we produced were laminations of  Extruded Polystyrene, XPS  using plywood facings, these panels were produced on Vacuum Blanket  press tables.  During this phase of our  development we produced  what is known as “THE MANTLE PANEL” (Shell Springboard prize winner for innovation). this panel used CPB (Cement Particle Board ) Facings and Expanded Polystyrene EPS cores. During the first pressings of these panels we observed serious defects in the EPS core, serious density variation, our opinion was that if a low density panel was utilised into a point loading of a building there could be problems with Disproportional Collapse, so we continued in house to only use DOW RTM Styrofoam for our laminated panels, at the same time we started to look at alternative methods of SIP Manufacture, namely Pressure Injection of Polyurethane PUR.

PUR  pressure injection was developing rapidly in its use in steel faced roofing and cladding panel on Industrial buildings, we identified this material as being the material for Siptec SIP Panels so we decided  to concentrate our development efforts on PUR pressure injection. Trials showed that adhesion of PUR to the facings was superb, the material also gave a 40% improvement in panel lambda value and the higher consistant density gave dramatic  improvements in panel strength, racking performance and UDL loading.

Pressure injection of the pre painted steel facings used in cladding panels  throws up other problems with de-lamination and to overcome this heat has to be applied to the facing to ensure adhesion, this entails the use of expensive heated platens that have to be machined to very close tolerances to ensure no marking occurs to the pre painted panel facings.

Siptec purchased and used this type of press for several years, during this period we started to develop a Low Cost press doing away with the expensive platen heating and machining and we also addressed the problem of productivity by producing presses with a larger air gap  so that we could process up to 10 panels per cycle. Evolution brought us to the present High Throughput SIPTEC Press produced at a price far below other presses and with significantly greater daily  panel production.
