Ipsen U Offers Training for Multiple Levels of Expertise


For those who want to learn about new thermal processing methods and industry innovations, Ipsen U classes have a long-standing tradition of teaching best practices and helping improve the performance and life span of your equipment.

Ipsen begins 2017 by hosting another series of Ipsen U classes with courses available February 7-9, April 4-6, June 6-8, August 1-3, and October 3-5. These three-day courses provide attendees with a broad overview of furnace equipment, processes, and maintenance, as well as a hands-on approach to learning while receiving qualified tips directly from the experts. Past attendees have praised the instructors’ “incredible amount of knowledge, hints, tips, and real-world advice.”

  • Throughout the course, attendees are able to:
  • Learn about an extensive range of topics — from an introduction to vacuum and atmosphere furnaces to heat treating, furnace controls, subsystems, maintenance, and more.
  • View the different furnace components firsthand while learning how they affect other parts of the furnace and/or specific processes.
  • Participate in a leak detection demonstration.
  • Tour Ipsen’s facility.

Regardless of where you fall on the expertise scale — maintenance, operator, engineer, project manager, or plant manager — Ipsen U instructors will provide the necessary level of information in a casual, open-forum environment. With a newly remodeled classroom, Ipsen U features comfortable seating for up to 36 attendees, as well as integrated technology with a large smartboard and two additional monitors for interactive presentations and demonstrations.
