White Paper - 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.
