Ipsen opens vacuum furnace facility

Heat treatment specialist Ipsen is reportedly adapted its ceramics facility in Pecatonica, Illinois, USA, for vacuum furnace hot zone assembly.

“Incorporating the Pecatonica location into Ipsen’s vacuum furnace production and aftermarket process will provide added benefits to customers,” the company said.

“Our goal is to reduce delivery times and better control the critical phase of assembly,” added Jake Hamid, Ipsen director and chief operating officer.
