Ipsen USA installed a Titan® vacuum furnace at Stack Metallurgical Group’s location in Spokane Valley, Washington. Stack Metallurgical Group is Nadcap accredited and the Northwestern United States’ largest commercial heat treater.

Formerly known as Inland NW Metallurgical Services, Stack Spokane is one of the company’s four locations offering a range of metal processing services. Installation of the Titan® H6 2-bar vacuum furnace was completed in late 2019 and will be used to process critical aerospace components.

Stack operates four Ipsen furnaces in Spokane and a dozen more in Portland. From stress relieving, normalizing, annealing, and hardening, Ipsen has supplied Stack with numerous furnaces to meet just about any heat-treating need.

“It was an easy choice adding another Ipsen furnace to our offering,” said General Manager Ron Decker. “We count on Ipsen for a versatile product that delivers great results.”

Titan® furnaces achieve powerful performance using innovative technology and predictive maintenance capabilities all while maintaining a global platform, small footprint, and short delivery times. This Titan® H6 has a graphite hot zone, load size of 36” wide x 36” high x 48” deep and can process up to 3,000 pounds.
