White Paper - High Pressure Heat Treatment perfects the properties of your medical implants

HIP for the additive manufacturing industry Today, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is standard practice for eliminating pores to improve the material properties of parts for the medical implant industry, where additive manufacturing (AM) is rapidly taking hold. With pioneering developments from Quintus Technologies, stress relieving, HIP, and quenching can be applied in the same HIP cycle, which has significant implications for cost and quality. Not only does this approach drastically lower post-processing costs, but it can also break up columnar grain structures for 3D printed parts. Thanks to these advances, Quintus HIP technology has a vital role to play in the production chain of medical implants.
