Västerås, Sweden, June 2, 2021 – The acquisition of a Quintus Technologies Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) marks the success of the powder metallurgy (PM) manufacturing program launched three years ago by China’s Tiangong International Company Limited. The country’s largest producer of tool and die steel – and the second largest in the world – Tiangong is expanding capacity and boosting productivity with the QIH 232 M URC® press, to be installed in its sprawling manufacturing facility in Danyang City, Jiangsu province.
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.
