This is Hot Isostatic Pressing

With quality and productivity in focus

For more than 50 years Quintus Technologies® has led the industry in advanced Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) technology. Customers rely on us for the superior engineering that results in highly reliable HIP systems that operate around the clock with service lives of tens of thousands of cycles.

Fast, precise and cost-effective

HIP is used to form and densify containerized powder shapes and containerless metal, ceramic and plastic parts. With typical pressures from 1,035 to 2,070 bar (15,000 to 30,000 psi) and temperatures up to 2,000°C (4,000°F), HIP can achieve 100% of maximum theoretical density and improve the ductility and fatigue resistance of critical, high-performance materials. The components are often of net shape or near net shape configuration.

A proven process for high-performance parts

Common applications for HIP include defect healing of castings, consolidation of powder metal and ceramic parts or diffusion bonding.

“Bodycote has collaborated with Quintus Technologies for many years to design and build high-efficiency HIP systems. We have worked out the specification for our P/M steel HIP system with their specialists to give us the best solution for our specific needs.”

Nils-Bertil Gustavsson, Former President of HIP operations, Bodycote

Hot Isostatic Pressing Benefits and Why you Should HIP

Benefits of using Hot Isostatic Pressing Technology

Unmatched durability
More than 90% of our HIPs installed over the last 40 years are still in operation. Our exclusive Quintus Technologies® pre-stressed wire wound vessel and frame concept is the best pressure containment system ever designed, offering:

  • maximum safety
  • greatest durability
  • highest cost-efficiency
  • lowest weight

More efficient production vs. traditional manufacturing

  • Decreased scrap loss
  • Less NDT
  • NNS to precise tolerance
  • MIM and AMcombined with HIP can reduce energy use up to 50%
  • MIM and AM combined with HIP can  reduce material costs up to 90%

Why you Should Utilize Hot Isostatic Pressing

100% of theoretical density
  • Longer life time
  • Predictive life time
  • Lighter and low weight designs

Improved material properties

  • Increased mechanical properties e.g. fatigue, wear, abrasion and elongation
  • Reduced scatter in mechanical properties
  • Increased corrosion properties
  • Stress relief of MIM parts
  • Stress relief of AM parts
