Rockford Heat Treaters orders another Ipsen vacuum furnace

The original beta tester for the Titan vacuum furnace when it first launched – and owner of more than 24 other Ipsen furnaces – Rockford Heat Treaters (RHT) remains focused on providing their customers with high-quality options so they can stay competitive in today's market. As RHT continues to invest in their plant and equipment, they recently purchased a Titan H6 to expand production capacity and cater to increased demand.

As a commercial heat treater, process versatility is essential in a shop where requirements change on a day-to-day, or even hour-to-hour, basis. Part of what appealed to the company about the product line is its high adaptability and part cleanliness. In fact, when they purchased the first Titan furnace, it gave them the flexibility to expand their customer base and take jobs not previously possible. Their 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" W x 36" H x 48" D (915 mm x 915 mm x 1,220 mm) all-graphite hot zone with a 3,000-pound (1,361 kg) load capacity. Equipped with a diffusion pump, this furnace allows them to meet 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 start up and personnel training. This support 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. The Titan vacuum furnace incorporates years of customer feedback to deliver user-friendly features, all while maintaining a global platform, small footprint and short delivery times. Available in several sizes and horizontal or vertical configurations, the furnace provides powerful performance for both experienced and first-time heat treaters.
