White Paper - HIP perfects the properties of your 3D printed parts

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 demanding markets, like aerospace and medical implants, where additive manufacturing (AM) is rapidly taking hold. Now, pioneering developments from Quintus Technologies allow stress relieving, HIP, and quenching to be applied in the same press, an innovation with 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 powder-based additive manufacturing.
