White Paper - Hot Isostatic Pressing for the Casting Industry

Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is the application of an extremely high isostatic pressure at approximately 85% of the melting point on a solid object. The pressure and temperature are sustained for a predefined time with the purpose to eliminate internal voids and defects in components to achieve 100% theoretical density. The pressure and heat are applied to the components via an inert gas, normally argon.

HIP for the casting industry Today, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is standard practice for eliminating pores to improve the material properties of high-end castings. Thanks to recent advances, Quintus Technologies has succeeded in increasing HIP productivity by up to 100%. These improvements result in a running cost of 0.10 USD/lb, a value proposition that makes HIP of even greater interest to the casting industry. And now, heat treatment of castings can be applied directly in the HIP system, with no added cost or process time.
