Ipsen’s TITAN® DS vacuum debind and sintering furnace presented at PowderMet2012

June 22, 2012

Ipsen, Inc., headquartered in Cherry Valley, IL, USA, presented its new TITAN DS vacuum debinding and sintering furnace at PowderMet 2012, June 10-13 2012, claiming that the company has made great strides in easing product maintenance and ensuring repeatability and precision.

Although Ipsen has already been in the sintering business for some time, the company has recently partnered with one of the world’s largest MIM manufacturers to bring about some innovative changes that set the TITAN DS apart. “This furnace provides technical features optimised for MIM and PM applications with an unbeatable price-to-volume-ratio. And since it is based on Ipsen’s TITAN platform, which is bestselling and well-proven in the heat treatment and vacuum brazing industry, it comes with many of the same benefits,” stated Ipsen.

The furnace operates 50/60 Hz, any voltage and in more than 20 languages. The TITAN DS fits into one standard global shipping container and ships within 10 weeks of the order with one-day installation.

The furnace’s sintering process benefits include the ability to handle very high binder content in MIM applications and the company states that its batch processing is now competitive with continuous processing.

Thanks to the TITAN DS’s automated protection system, the company claims that binder build-up in pumps and piping is virtually eliminated. “This allows for a reduced door-to-door cycle time with easier maintenance and care. The accurate control of the gas flow carries evaporated binder out of the hot zone and eliminates cross contamination. Furthermore, the optimized hot zone design with additional front and rear heating elements provides for improved cleanliness and temperature uniformity for flawless part quality.”

Ipsen also claims that despite these benefits, the furnace does not sacrifice its energy efficiency, which it states is still 30% more efficient than comparable models. “This offers our customers a scalable solution to closely and cost-efficiently adapt their capacity planning to the quickly growing PM and MIM markets.”
