Rapid cooling has drastically reduced HIP operating costs, and interest in insourcing the technology grows every year. For a large-production HIP unit used for castings of steels, ductile cast iron, titanium, or aluminum, the HIP cost is approximately 0.10-0.15 USD/lb, depending on material. This cost should be compared with the expense and time spent on NDT, weld repairs, and high scrap rates, which to a large extent can be excluded when HIP is applied.
For decades, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) has been used successfully by manufacturers around the world. HIP is used to eliminate casting defects such as pores, which dramatically increase the material properties.
