Check each half year the surface quality of the runners (W). If you do not check this, it can influence the ironing roller (S) in a negative way.

Remove debris.

The runners can be dismounted if the ironing roller is not resting upon the runners. A tool is available, which can lift the ironer roller. This tool (A) can be ordered with your IPSO dealer.

The two small screening plates underneath the machine (1 on the left and 1 on the right) have to be taken away.

Then you have to mount the "ironing lifting plates“ (A) on both sides with 2 bolts (B), which have to be tightened manually. Also the two bolts (C) have to be mounted. These bolts (C) have to be tightened in such a way that the lifting plate (A) supports the roller evenly.

To prevent that the ironing roller (S) is lifted too high and so would damage internal components,

you have to determine the position of the lifting plates (A) if they just touch the roller. If so, measure (L). The plate may not be screwed up more than 5mm (for the 8 bolts, it means not more than 4 turns from the moment, the plate just touches the ironing roller).

The ironing roller is now lifted by the plates. The runners can be removed.

The runners are fitted with M12 bolts (D).

By removing these bolts, the runners become free and can be taken out.

Mount the runners in reverse order.

Feeding belts

The tension of the feeding belts has to be increased if the belts are not driven properly.

Exchanging the belts:

-Slacken the belts (see page 40).

-Turn the belt by hand in such a way that the connector is in front of you.

-Then pull the pin out of the belt and hold both ends of the belt.

-Now connect the new belt to the old belt by putting back the pin in the connector.

-By pulling the free end of the old belt, the new belt will be pulled through the machine.

-If the pin is in front of you again, you disconnect the old belt from the new belt and connect both ends of the new belt.

-Do this for all belts and then tension the feeding belts (see page 40).

Ironer belts

For tensioning the ironer belts, see page 39.

Using the machine will pollute the ironing belts so that they will become smaller, longer and thinner. If the ironing effect has become unacceptable, you have to exchange the ironing belts by new ones.

Slacken the belt tensioners by reducing the spring tension of the tensioners to zero and remove the tension nut of the springs so that the tensioner can move freely.

Do this on the left and right side of the machine (see page 39).

Push (inside the side frame, on both sides) by means of a beam (or some other tool) the tensioner to its highest possible position. Place the small beams vertically underneath the spanner.

Now remove the top plating, the rear plating as well as the vapour exhaust beam (see page 39) of the machine.

The pressure roll of the ironer (roll straight above the ironing roller) has to be lifted up. This can be done by putting wooden beams from the feeding side between the main roll and the shaft of the pressure roll on both sides (left and right). The beams can be used as a lever for lifting the roller.

Mounting new ironing belts happens in reverse order. For this purpose, please note the following points:

-The flap on the ironing belts has to be on one side of the ironing roller. Also the ironing belt has to be placed in such a way that the flap is dragged by the ironing belt.

-Connect the ends of the ironing belt in such a way that the ends are in line. This means that the pulled part of the belts may not protrude on a side. This could cause a mechanical load to the machine, which does not help its life of the machine.

Drive

The chain tension has to be checked biannually as described on page 38.

The condition of the chain wheels has to be checked biannually, as well. If the chain wheels are worn down, they have to be exchanged.

Slacken the chain by placing the motor in its top position. Loosen the hexagon socket screw of the chain wheel that has to be exchanged one turn and remove the chain.

Important

The tightening moment of the taper lock bolts for the clamping bush has to be 31Nm to prevent slipping.

Scrapers

Check if the scrapers are damaged. If one of the fingers of the scrapers has become bent, you have to exchange the scraper.

Slacken the scraper beam by loosening the fixing bolt (1x left and 1x right). Now the beam can be turned so that the fastening screws of the scraper plates become visible. A scraper plate is fastened with 5 screws.

The scrapers are fitted with plastic blocks. These blocks run over the ironing roller and will wear.

Check these blocks on wear. If this wear is to such an extend that the metal of the scraper almost pierces the plastic, this plastic block has to be exchanged.
