Ipsen MetalMaster Vacuum Furnace

Cherry Valley, ILLINOIS (August 20, 2020) – Despite uncertain market conditions presented by the Coronavirus pandemic, Ipsen saw an increase in orders placed during July, building positive momentum for the third quarter.

Ipsen was awarded five vacuum furnace orders between four customers, each with unique process requirements in the aerospace, defense and commercial heat-treating industries. The product mix varies from MetalMaster® to TurboTreater® to Ipsen’s signature Vacuum Aluminum Brazing furnace, all designed to meet the customers’ specific needs.

In addition to the five new orders, Ipsen shipped nine furnaces in July to customers across six states in the U.S. as well as Canada and the United Kingdom.

“Ipsen has worked with international operations teams for decades, shipping equipment from the U.S. to countries all over the world,” said Ipsen USA President and CEO Patrick McKenna. “With the identification of Ipsen USA as the Vacuum Center of Excellence, we can continue servicing those companies with the level of quality they expect and deserve.”

Orders this year have included a healthy blend of new equipment, aftermarket parts, service and retrofits. Ipsen is hopeful this upward trend will continue through the fourth quarter.
