More intelligent for greater efficiency with Ipsen's hardware and software solutions.



The Conti-Control® process software has been developed especially for continuous and semi-continuous furnace plants. It allows the benefits of continuous processes, which include high throughput, energy savings and consistent qualities, to be used for enabling

  • flexible process control,
  • lot size optimisation and
  • chart-based protocols.

The system records the specific charge parameters and accurately controls the charge-critical process parameters as the charge travels through the heating and cooling zones. At the end of the heat-treatment process, all parameters recorded are documented in a protocol, which makes them available for an exactly reproducible heat-treatment cycle.

Any process parameter changes necessary are automatically made by the computer which also calculates the number of empty charges or idle times. Weekend and burn-out programs increase the plant's efficiency and profitability.

The Conti-Control® process software plays a key role in optimising production objectives such as

  • quality consistency,
  • cost control,
  • reproducibility,
  • product quality, and
  • operation safety.
