White Paper - HIP Treatment of Additively Manufactured Inconel 718 Components for Aerospace Applications

Additive manufacturing offers a range of possibilities for the aerospace industry. Without the limitations of traditional production methods, 3D printing allows for new designs that cut costs, reduce weight and improve reliability. Starting out as a prototyping tool, additive manufacturing has evolved into a fully-fledged production technology used by many of the world’s leading aircraft producers. The possibility to use materials such as high-strength alloys and light-weight metals has expanded the use of 3D printed components. One of these materials is Inconel 718, a superalloy used in demanding applications at high temperatures, for example in gas turbine blades.
