Ipsen USA, Cherry Valley, Illinois, USA, has reported that it has shipped two of four TITAN® H6 2 bar vacuum furnaces as part of an order made by a West Coast aerospace customer. The furnaces will reportedly be used for heat treating additively manufactured parts in full-scale production. The remaining furnaces are expected to be shipped in January 2020.
According to the company, TITAN furnaces achieve powerful performance using cutting-edge technology and predictive maintenance capabilities while maintaining a global platform, small footprint and short delivery times. The TITAN H6 has a load size of 91 cm wide x 91 cm high x 121 cm deep and can process up to 1360 kg.
“Ipsen has the industry’s best lead time with the TITAN furnace,” commented Pete Kerbel, Ipsen’s Vice President of Sales. “This, coupled with a product designed specifically for the AM industry, made Ipsen the obvious choice for this project.”
