With typical pressures from 400 to 2,070 bar (5,800 to 30,000 psi) and temperatures up to 2,000°C (3,632°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 hight-performance parts
Common applications for Hot Isostatic Pressing include defect healing of castings, consolidation of Titanium powder and diffusion bonding of dissimilar metals or alloys. The technology is expanding into new applications such as very large castings as well as heat treatment of Aluminium components by T6 or hardening of iron-based materials by modifying the HIP gas mixtures.
