Ipsen was awarded U.S. Patent No. 9,719,149 B2 for the development of a new load transport mechanism that can move a load within a multi-station heat-treating system. Chief Engineer Craig Moller, Director of Engineering and Supply Chain Kevin Woerner and Dr. W. Hendrik Grobler – the named inventors on the patent – began developing this design five years ago.

Ipsen currently has nearly 100 U.S. granted patents, as well as numerous patents granted in other countries around the world.
