Ipsen will ship four VFS® furnaces from its Souderton, Pa., facility to customers around the U.S. in the last quarter of 2014. This equipment will be delivered to sites in Washington, Ohio, North Carolina and South Carolina and will be used primarily within the aerospace and medical industries. The vacuum furnaces cover a wide range of the VFS product line, including HIQ (horizontal internal quench) and HEQ (horizontal external quench) systems. The orders also include the specialized VDS (vacuum debind and sinter) system, which is capable of high-efficiency binder and contaminate trapping.
