Västerås, Sweden, March 30, 2021 – The Quintus Technologies Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) to be delivered to the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in Dresden will permit researchers to deepen their expertise and refine processes for pressure-supported heat treatment, used to maximize theoretical density, ductility, and fatigue resistance in high-performance materials.
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.
