Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) has been used to remove shrinkage porosity and internal defects in cast products for many years, to improve mechanical properties and fatigue resistance. Of late, focus has moved to further improve thermal processing routes through innovative use of the heat and the inert gas pressure from the densification process. Studies have demonstrated significant benefits for production processes such as Additive Manufacturing (AM), casting and metal injection molding (MIM) where demands on quality are significant and where internal defects are an area of concern.
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.
