Expert-Taught Training

With any industry, staying up-to-date on new methods and industry innovations is a key contributor to success. Ipsen is preparing to host another series of Ipsen U classes available August 2-4. This three-day course provides attendees with a broad overview of furnace equipment, processes and maintenance, as well as a hands-on approach to learning while receiving qualified tips directly from the experts. 

Reflecting on past courses, attendees commented that “staff and facility are top notch and very knowledgeable in the heat-treating process.” Another participant surveyed praised the instructors’ “incredible amount of knowledge, hints, tips and real world advice.” Others found it useful to “see all of the different furnace designs and be able to relate them to the information talked about earlier in the class,” concluding “mixing the lecture with actual furnace visualization was extremely valuable.”

Throughout the course, attendees are able to:
• Learn about an extensive range of topics – from an introduction to vacuum and atmosphere furnaces to heat treating, furnace controls, subsystems, maintenance and more
• View the different furnace components firsthand while learning how they affect other parts of the furnace and/or specific processes
• Take part in one-on-one discussions with Ipsen experts
• Participate in a leak detection demonstration
• Tour Ipsen’s facility

Overall, Ipsen U allows participants to build and refresh their knowledge of heat-treating equipment and processes through applied learning. Regardless of where you fall on the expertise scale – maintenance, operator, engineer, project manager and/or plant manager – Ipsen U’s instructors will provide the necessary level of information in a casual, open-forum environment.

This Summit will explain how to navigate the complexities of international trade, simplify global commerce, and promote trade between the U.S. and China. 

Toolots, Inc. (City of Industry, CA), a company that provides a factory-direct e-commerce platform for international manufacturers to easily and affordably purchase and sell industrial tools, machinery and technology, announces its Inaugural Manufacturing Exchange Summit. The event will be held at its headquarters in Cerritos, CA, August 29-31, 2016.

Designed to promote international trade between the United States and China, the Summit will delve into key topics for navigating the complex logistical and administrative requirements of international commerce.

“U.S. manufacturers that want to sell their equipment overseas are often discouraged by the complexities of international trade," explained Jason Fu, the founder and chief executive officer of Toolots. "Plus, many do not have the resources to spend on marketing their products overseas or the ability to provide after-sale service to customers. The goal of this Summit is to help these manufacturers better understand how they can effectively sell their equipment to the Chinese manufacturing market.”

At the Manufacturing Exchange Summit, Toolots is gathering the key players necessary to help facilitate international relations among U.S. and Chinese manufacturers. From a Chinese delegation responsible for global commerce to American manufacturers that have achieved success by streamlining distribution channels, discussions will cover a number of international trade topics, including:
• Protecting intellectual property
• Managing import and export logistics
• Handling currency exchange
• Navigating customs
• Marketing products overseas

Attendees will have an opportunity to meet and network with leading experts in international trade, U.S.-based manufacturers and manufacturing association representatives.
