Ipsen sold its first TITAN® Temper vacuum furnace to Hansen-Balk Steel Treating, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based commercial heat treater that works in the tool & die and aerospace industries. The TITAN T was designed as a dedicated batch furnace for tempering, aging, annealing and stress relieving, and Hansen-Balk’s applications were factored into the furnace’s testing. The low-temperature furnace incorporated shared data from both companies. The TITAN T combines cleanliness and efficiency through the use of both vacuum and convection heating. The standard furnace comes with graphite heating elements, stainless steel shielding and a graphite hearth.
