Ipsen, Cherry Valley, Illinois, USA, reports that it has sold two further Titan® DS6 2 bar vacuum furnaces to an internationally-known Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) company. This most recent sale brings the total number of Ipsen furnaces purchased by the company to eighteen.
“When this relationship started a decade ago, I did not anticipate how much we would learn from each other,” stated Geoffrey Somery, CEO, Ipsen Group. “After all these years we still enjoy a collaborative exchange of ideas, which supports this customer’s drive to deliver excellence across hundreds of part variations.”
Ipsen states that while many MIM parts producers use smaller furnaces for their debinding and sintering operations, this manufacturer requires what it calls a ‘work horse’ system: a furnace capable of handling large volumes of components for demanding applications. Ipsen’s furnaces offer a work zone volume of 915 mm x 915 mm x 1,220 mm, a load capacity of 1,360 kg and a ‘right-sized’ filtration system, making them ideally suited to the MIM producer’s needs.
