Aerodef Manufacturing  offers a unique opportunity for aerospace manufacturers to meet face-to-face with engineers, product designers, and managers to find innovative solutions to their most difficult manufacturing challenges. Quintus's Dr. Anders Eklund  will present Heat Treatment of AM Parts by Hot Isostatic Pressing. Heat Treatment of AM Parts by Hot Isostatic Pressing Anders Eklund, Senior Sales Manager By applying a HIP step, pores will be eliminated and the density will increase to virtually 100% of theoretical density. This pore elimination will improve the strength, ductility, and especially the fatigue properties of the material. Residual stresses will also be eliminated. Today, it is possible to combine HIPing and heat treatment in a specifically designed HIP equipped with Uniform Rapid Quenching (URQ®) or Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC®). This paper will describe the process and benefits of HIP of MIM parts together with the possibilities and advantages of combining the HIP process and heat treatment in a Rapid Cool HIP.
