White Paper - Trends in Hot Isostatic Pressing in Aerospace Applications

The demanding environment in aerospace applications, especially jet engines, has long required the use of Hot Isostatic pressing (HIP) to ensure consistent, defect-free material characteristics to ensure long term high integrity operations. As the conflicting requirements of low weight, and high integrity continue to set higher bars of performance, a larger, and more diverse set of aircraft and engine parts are seeing HIP requirements as part of their processing. It is extremely important to understand that modern HIP systems can now offer the capability to combine a conventional HIP cycle with other heat treat processes and offer productivity and process efficiency improvements.
