Space

Mission critical parts for rockets, satellites and future space exploration need robust and light-weight solutions to withstand the rigorous demands of launch and long term space flight. Quintus high pressure equipment is key to improving payload volume by reduction of mass in re-usable launch vehicles and payload structures.

When "right the first time" is the only option

Sending humans and expensive equipment into space is an undertaking that can cause challenges in all aspects of design, materials, and manufacturing. There are no shortcuts taken when it comes to safety and reliability, and space agencies and companies around the world have developed best practices with respect to the production of components. The HIP is an essential component of the supply chain, to ensure the degree of reliability needed for mission-critical.

Additive manufacturing is having an enormous impact on this industry and HIP/HPHT™ is being used to drive the material properties needed for the colonization of the solar system with the use of printed reusable rocket engines. Combining HIP and Heat treatment into one process is that chosen route for many materials, and Quintus is at the forefront of machinery development leaving no space for mistakes.

Equipment to make space exploration possible

The design of functional parts is becoming an increased focus area within space and aviation application, to achieve increased strength and functionality adapted parts. This enables the light-weighting of components to increase payload capacity and reduce fuel consumption. Quintus sheet metal forming and High Pressure Heat Treatment presses have been, and continue to be proven enablers.

Designing the future​

HPHT™ is a key enabler for the use of additive manufacturing in the aerospace sector, giving repeatable and improved mechanical properties for mission-critical components.

Enabling extra-terrestrial expansion​

HIP ensures safety for future steps into space, onto the moon, and further into the galaxy. The durability of components that have left Earth’s atmosphere is essential, and HIP is a requirement for many applications.
