Ipsen recently shipped more than 15 furnaces to customers in the U.S., England, Canada, India, Indonesia, Mexico and Singapore. The furnaces were designated for use in a range of applications and industries, including aerospace, commercial heat treating, tool and die, energy and medical. The furnaces were designed to run a number of different processes, including annealing, brazing, hardening, stress relieving and tempering.
The equipment included horizontal and vertical vacuum furnaces, as well as a vacuum aluminum-brazing furnace – all with a variety of hot-zone sizes and materials, including two vertical 84-inch x 84-inch hot zones. These furnaces offered a range of different features, from being capable of meeting AMS 2750E requirements to providing improved temperature uniformity using individual, PID-controlled heating zones. Every furnace was fully tested at vacuum and at temperature to ensure fast commissioning.
