Advanced Engineering Systems

Ipsen's team of engineering experts continue to expand the possibilities of heat treatment by designing innovative, highly technical atmosphere and vacuum solutions for customers' unique challenges.

When it comes to advanced engineering, Ipsen works consultatively with the customer to understand their needs, as well as parts and process requirements. Then, our team of 20+ engineers develops a design strategy and - using engineering simulation tools, such as finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) - has the ability to test product designs early in the process to ensure we provide the best solution.

It's really impressive to see the magnitude and complexity of projects we've completed over the years. For example, Ipsen recently built a vertical, high-pressure quenching furnace, complete with twin cooling systems designed to quench with 1,000 horsepower for a customer who specifically required a large furnace with a very aggressive cooling rate. In addition, we currently have a furnace occupying an entire section of our facility; it's the largest horizontal vacuum furnace we've ever manufactured and has a load capacity of 210,000 lbs.

Our commitment to delivering quality solutions extends to every project, regardless of scope - from developing proprietary software and controls, to taking in-field measurements, designing upgrades and retrofits (including custom-engineered solutions for non-Ipsen equipment) and assisting with technical support inquiries.

As technology continues to advance, it is exciting to know that soon we could be engineering, testing and manufacturing highly technical furnace solutions for projects that have yet to be imagined. When a team with 300 years of engineering experience works together, anything is possible.
