For more than 25 years, ECM Technologies has been a reference for main contractors with its patented Infracarb® process and its range of modular ICBP® installations.
To meet the most diverse applications, the ICBP® range is now available in modular furnaces, such as ICBP® Flex and ICBP® Jumbo, double chamber (ICBP®Duo) and single chamber furnaces (ICBP® Mono) and an in line integrated (ICBP® Nano). More than 262 installations corresponding to more than 1296 vacuum carburizing cells are producing in the world today.
These aforementioned ICBP installations stand for the French acronym “Installations de Cémentation Basse Pression”, which means Low Pressure Carburizing Installations. However, these machines can handle many more processes. Indeed, LPCN (Low Pressure Carbonitriding), brazing, sintering and many kinds of quenching can take place within these lines. Furthermore, all of ECM Technologies ICBP installations can reach a high level of automation and can be set up directly in workshops. As an example, the ICBP Nano can be considered as a machine tool for vacuum carburizing since it can be fully integrated into production lines.
Another advantage of the ECM Technologies’ range of LPC installations lies in the fact that these machines can be integrated directly into factories. This is mainly due thanks to the use of vacuum. No flames result from carburizing or quenching operations. Today, an in line clean heat treatment is finally possible.
