Reinventing Atmosphere Heat-Treating Technology at FNA 2014

Last week at Furnaces North America (FNA) 2014, Ipsen showed us how they are reinventing the future of atmosphere heat-treating technology. Ipsen featured their ATLAS® atmosphere furnace and Carb-o-Prof® control software, both of which offer exceptional performance and cost-saving functions.

Ipsen has an excellent record with reinventing technology; their TITAN® furnace line, with nearly 200 sold, transformed vacuum heat treatment by re-imagining an equipment platform that encompassed superior quality along with cost-effective operation and delivery anywhere in the world.

During FNA 2014, attendees brought a part drawing or details of their material to Ipsen’s booth where an Ipsen expert worked with them to optimize the ideal recipe for their parts. Those who customized their recipes received extra entries into a drawing for an iPad. The winner of Ipsen’s iPad drawing was Chris Lopez from Woodward, Inc.

Ipsen’s Senior Technical Manager, Jim Grann, also presented on “Recognizing Different Types and Causes of Leaks and Understanding How They Affect Your Furnace and Processes.” To learn more on this topic, visit Ipsen’s blog, The Ipsen, Harold (, and check out their “Finding Leaks in Your Furnace” series. Those who subscribe to follow The Ipsen, Harold will also receive another opportunity to win an iPad. Stay tuned to the blog for more details coming soon.

About ATLAS® and Carb-o-Prof ®

Ipsen’s batch atmosphere ATLAS furnace is able to produce efficient results while being extremely cost-effective. This single-chain furnace model utilizes the same push-pull chain loader as the industry standard, allowing it to integrate into existing lines with ease. It also provides quality insulation capable of withstanding temperatures well above the working temperature, as well as consistent uniformity with the addition of an optional ceramic muffle that assists in even soaking of the load.

Ipsen’s Carb-o-Prof control system allows users to monitor and control uniformity of the C-level within the atmosphere, maintaining a close tolerance for the workpiece surface carbon content. Carb-o-Prof also delivers an extensive recipe database, simulation functions with C-Profile optimization and adaptive control that ensures the best part quality is achieved every time.
