Brochure - Introduction to HIP and HPHT

Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) is a process that densifies porosity and improves the mechanical properties of metal components. It is an essential production step in a wide range of industries where reliability is key. 

A new generation of HIP systems from Quintus Technologies with built-in heat treatment capabilities is offering a unique possibility to perform HIP and heat treatment in one cycle. These High Pressure Heat Treatment (HPHT) systems not only improve production and energy efficiency dramatically, but also brings new opportunities to improve material properties even further with new, tailored treatment processes.

White Paper - Hot Isostatic Pressing in Space – Essential Technology to Ensure Mission Safety

The space industry has seen a great deal of interest in recent years, with all major nations actively pursuing both civil and military space programs. In 2020, the global industry had grown to approximately $400 Billion, and the greatest growth was seen in the private sector. Market expectations are the overall Space market will reach $1 Trillion by 2030.

Mission critical components are processed using HIP to ensure integrity with significantly increased fatigue life, in the range of 10 to 100 times. Increased ductility and fracture toughness are also a result of defect healing. This technique has been utilised for many years on cast material and is becoming increasingly important for newer production methods such as additive manufacturing, or 3D printing.
