Did you know?
Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is a manufacturing process that can significantly improve the quality of AM metal parts via heat and pressure.
In order to respond even better to the industrial requirements of 3D printed series parts, we focus on the technological synergy between additive manufacturing, high pressure heat treatment (HPHT), and hot isostatic pressing (HIP). That's why we have now acquired the latest HIP system by Quintus Technologies. The machine will be operational in our factory in August 2019.
HPHT and HIP are used for the consolidation and densification of metal and ceramic parts. With typical pressures of up to 2,070 bar and temperatures of up to 1,400 °C as well as cooling rates of 4 K/sec, HIP treatment can improve the mechanical properties of the component and produce a component density of almost 100%.
In case of any questions around HPHT/HIP please get in touch with our HPHT expert Alexander Bonke.
