Monterrey, MEXICO (September 25, 2023) – Tratamientos Termicos Avanzados (TTA) recently received their first vacuum furnace from Ipsen. Translated to “Advanced Heat Treatments,” TTA is a leader in plasma nitriding services for steel. They serve many industries and boast a clientele that includes John Deere, Caterpillar and Nissan.
Looking to expand their capabilities by adding vacuum processing to their commercial heat-treating business, they chose an Ipsen Turbo2Treater for its process flexibility. The new furnace has a work zone size of 24” x 24” x 36”, 1,600 lb. weight capacity, 2,400 °F maximum operating temperature, and quench pressure up to 12 bar. It will mainly be used for hardening tool steels but can easily be adapted to meet new customers’ needs.
TTA chose Ipsen for their ability to lead them in the right direction to grow their business.
“We think that Ipsen is the best manufacturer of vacuum furnaces and has the best after-sales service in the USA and Mexico,” said Jesus Manzur, Sales Manager for TTA.
With the addition of the Turbo2Treater, TTA expects exponential growth and plans to purchase more Ipsen furnaces for carburizing and tempering in the future.
