Ipsen, Cherry Valley, Ill., announces that Rockford Heat Treaters, the original beta tester for the Ipsen Titan vacuum furnace, recently purchased a Titan H6 to expand production capacity and to meet increased demand. As commercial heat treaters, Rockford engineers know that process versatility is essential in a shop where requirements change day-to-day, or even hour-to-hour.
Part of what appeals to the company about the TItan product line is its high adaptability and part cleanliness. In fact, the first Titan furnace enabled enough flexibility to expand customer base and take jobs not previously possible. The newest furnace continues in this tradition, and it will join many other Ipsen furnaces, including a complete atmosphere line of seven integral quench furnaces with ancillary washers and tempers, more than a dozen draw furnaces, a VFS vacuum furnace, and four other vacuum furnaces.
The Titan H6 has a 36 x 36 x 48 inches all-graphite hot zone with a 3000-pound load capacity. Equipped with a diffusion pump, this furnace meets aerospace requirements and process sensitive materials that require deep vacuum levels. RHT also took advantage of several Ipsen support offerings, including on-site inspection of the installation, equipment startup, and personnel training. This support, coupled with Ipsen's inventory of speculation-based Titan furnaces, allowed RHT to begin processing customer parts within five weeks of issuing the purchase order.
With the current option to trade in an old furnace and receive a $50,000 credit toward a new Titan vacuum furnace, other companies can invest in their customers while adding the latest innovations to their facility as well. Available in several sizes and horizontal or vertical configurations, the Titan provides powerful performance for both experienced and first-time heat treaters.
