U.S. Patent Awarded for Large Vacuum Heat-Treating Furnace Loading System

Ispen's new patented large vacuum heat-treating furnace loading system.
The new loading system from Ipsen contains unrestricted length or load weight and jackscrew mechanisms that gently raise and lower loads onto the hearth to avoid any potential damage.

Education Relates to Heat Treating Success

Ipsen U instructors cover an extensive range of topics, from an introduction to vacuum furnaces and heat treating to furnace sub-systems, leak detection, maintenance and more.
A three-day course at Ipsen U allows attendees to ask questions about specific equipment and processes, as well as learn directly from experts in a casual, open-forum environment for those wanting to expand their thermal-processing knowledge base and for first-time furnace buyers.

Ipsen Sees Increase in Demand for Hot Zones and Retrofits

Ipsen’s orders are up compared to 2013
Orders include 27 hot zones, 37 controls upgrades and 23 mechanical retrofits for several Ipsen customers, both domestically and internationally.

University of Washington Brings Heat Treating In-House with a Lucifer Furnace

Students now have the ability to program heat treatment cycles that can then be run automatically and accurately. Programming options include temperature, hold time, and ramp rate, allowing a student to achieve the specific crystal structure and properties required for their application.
In addition to heat treatment, the new Lucifer HL7-P36 furnace can be used in casting and forging processes. This flexibility will make the new furnace a valuable asset to students both in and out of the engineering majors.
