Cold Isostatic Presses

Quintus designs, produces and delivers cold isostatic pressing equipment from small monolithic systems to extremely large wire-wound machinery

Scalable cold isostatic presses from Quintus

Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP) has been used successfully by manufacturers around the world. CIP is used to consolidate metal- and ceramic powders to make a “green” part that can be further treated, i.e. rolling, machining or sintering.

Cold isostatic presses

Large scale production made easy

Large pressure vessels are made possible using industrial solutions provided by Quintus for CIP machinery, increasing throughput and ensuring densification. ​

More efficient production

Quintus CIP equipment can be delivered in either vertical or horizontal loading configurations, from small scale equipment to extremely large production machinery. This scalability allows mass production at minimal cost.

Process media

Typical pressures from 1,035 to 4,138 bar (15,000 to 60,000 psi) at ambient temperature CIP can achieve 95% of theoretical density for ceramics and metal powders.

A proven process for high-performance parts

Common applications for Cold Isostatic Pressing include consolidation of ceramic powders, compressing of graphite, refractories and electrical insulators, and other fine ceramics for dental and medical applications.

Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP) entails subjecting components or powder in moulds to extreme isostatic pressure, up to 600 MPa (87,022psi) and at ambient temperature. Common pressure media include water, emulsion or oil and in some cases components my be bagged.

Metals, soft magnetics and ceramic powders are typical materials. In some cases CIPed material may be further processed using Hot Isostatic Pressing.

Powder subjected to extreme pressure in a mould is compacted into a solid, with a density of up to 95% depending on the material.

That depends on the cells design for an in-situ (or anode-free) lithium metal anode concept Quintus proposes a densification step of whole pouch cells. This position would fit the isostatic press after stacking and pouching.

The batch characteristic is an important topic for discussion. Our simulation shows that automation of the loading, unloading and densification won’t be a challenge for the implementation of isostatic pressing in the overall process. Additionally, the speed of stacking/winding is limiting the process speed before densification.

From the two vessel technologies, mono-block and wire-wound, the wire-wound technology systems can be scaled up to a cylinder volume of 2000 L.
