The HIP process uses a high isostatic pressure and elevated temperature to densify additively manufactured material by eliminating internal defects. The elimination of defects results in improved material properties such as fatigue, creep, ductility and fracture toughness. In many demanding AM applications, HIP is both a requirement and a necessity to achieve the required properties and material performance.
Material densification is a critical process for many manufacturing and materials processing applications. By using high-pressure techniques, materials such as metals, ceramics, and composites can be compressed to higher densities, resulting in increased mechanical properties and performance.
Quintus Technologies’ High Pressure Processing (HPP) is a natural, scientifically validated technology for food processing. HPP delivers food safety benefits, extends shelf-life, and maintains flavor, freshness, and nutrients. HPP uses ultra-high pressures instead of high temperatures and preservatives to inactivate foodborne pathogens, reduce waste, and deliver natural and nutritious.
