Since Fall 2011, our 1700C Box Furnace and 1800C Box Furnace line are CE certified furnaces (PDF). These are batch furnaces with a maximum temperature of 1800°C used for production and development of new products. CE certification is the only way that manufacturers can export products to the European Union. This streamlines the applications demands of multiple R&D facilities around the world while comparing test results.

CE marking is a mandatory conformity marking for certain products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA) since 1985. The CE marking is also found on products sold outside the EEA that are manufactured in, or designed to be sold in, the EEA. This makes the CE marking recognizable worldwide even to people who are not familiar with the European Economic Area.

The CE marking is the manufacturer's declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives.

"CE" originated as an abbreviation of Conformité Européenne, meaning European Conformity, but is not defined as such in the relevant legislation. The CE marking is a symbol of free marketability in the European Economic Area (Internal Market).
