Ipsen USA, Cherry Valley, Illinois, USA, has reported a surge in interest for standardised equipment as more mid-sized companies recover from pandemic related disruptions. The company has seen a steady increase in orders for TITAN vacuum furnaces this year, with five in July alone. This represents a substantial increase over the same period in 2020, and a fundamental shift from the more specialised equipment that was made up by increased demand in the first half of this year.
Customers range from those in cutting tools and machinery to Additive Manufacturing and aerospace. As businesses gain confidence in a stabilising economy and anticipate increased production demand, many are resuming pre-COVID investment plans, Ipsen reports.
Despite supply chain challenges throughout the manufacturing sector, the TITAN still reputedly has the industry’s best lead time. Its compact size, versatility and global operating platform make the TITAN an attractive option for those looking for a high performance turnkey solution with fast delivery and a small footprint. Customers have also reported Ipsen’s service & support, technical knowledge and product quality as factors in purchasing decisions.
