Rockford Heat Treaters (RHT) recently purchased an Ipsen TITAN H6 vacuum furnace to expand production capacity and cater to increased demand. The furnace has a 36-inch-wide x 36-inch-high x 48-inch-deep all-graphite hot zone with a 3,000-pound load capacity. Equipped with a diffusion pump, the unit allows RHT to meet aerospace requirements and process sensitive materials that require deep vacuum levels. Ipsen provided on-site inspection of the installation, equipment start-up and personnel training. This support permitted RHT to begin processing customer parts within five weeks of issuing the purchase order.
