Advanced Software for Heat Treatment Processes

Ipsen's CompuVac® Supervisory Control System is an ideal choice for users looking to purchase a new vacuum furnace, or for those who are considering an upgrade to present furnace controls. The CompuVac is currently the most powerful furnace control system on the market, and was developed by Ipsen to provide easy-to-use advanced controls.

The CompuVac is a completely new model built by experts specifically for vacuum thermal processing furnaces. It is more economical than most other supervisory systems currently available. The CompuVac eliminates process inconsistencies, minimizes the need for skilled manpower, enhances recipe creation and storage, improves repeatability, batch quality and profitability. In fact, CompuVac easily pays for itself in product yield and enhanced efficiency.

Despite its sophistication, the CompuVac is a very user-friendly system that can be retrofit to any brand of vacuum furnace to fulfill the automation of heat-treating operations from start to finish. CompuVac is written using Wonderware software and is standard on TurboTreater®, Ipsen MetalMaster® and VFS® furnaces, as well as all custom furnaces.
