Ipsen has reported that its first Ipsen U course of the year was held in April, where attendees received an extensive overview of furnace equipment, processes and maintenance. The three-day course, held at the company’s Cherry Valley facility in Illinois, USA, also provided hands-on training and open discussion for all levels of experience in the heat-treating industry.
Participants learned about an extensive range of topics – from an introduction to vacuum and atmosphere furnaces to heat treating, furnace controls, subsystems and maintenance. They viewed the different furnace components first-hand, while learning how each affects other parts of the furnace and/or specific processes. The course also included a tour of Ipsen’s facility.
Ipsen designs and manufactures industrial vacuum and atmosphere heat-treating systems, supervisory controls systems and predictive maintenance software platforms for a wide variety of industries, including Aerospace, Automotive, Commercial Heat Treating, Energy and Medical.
