Ipsen recently shipped a TITAN ® H8 vacuum furnace system with 2-bar gas quenching and PdMetrics™ predictive maintenance software platform to a company on the West Coast.
There it will be used to manufacture components and systems for the Aerospace industry. The TITAN H8 system provides a much-needed solution in the form of speed, reliability and versatility of process capabilities, and it is also capable of meeting applicable AMS 2750E and Nadcap requirements.
This horizontal furnace features a 48” x 80” x 48” (1,220 mm x 2,030 mm x 1,220 mm) all-metal work zone, with a 6,000-pound (2,700 kg) load capacity and is capable of operating at temperatures up to 2,500 °F (1,370 °C) with ±10 °F (±6 °C) temperature uniformity. A key feature of the TITAN H8 vacuum furnace system is its center elements option, which helps optimize the brazing process and ensures high-quality parts emerge bright and clean. This heat-treating system is also equipped with a dual 20” diffusion pumping system for high pumping performance.
In addition, this TITAN H8 system is integrated with Ipsen’s PdMetrics software platform for predictive maintenance. Offering sophisticated monitoring of critical systems and key parameters, the PdMetrics platform gathers data, analyzes it and provides real-time diagnostics that help improve the health and integrity of the equipment. Overall, this allows users to anticipate future furnace problems, refine operations, reduce unplanned downtime and increase production.
