HIP and High Pressure Heat Treatment. The Enabler for AM Technology

About This Webinar

Today, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is standard practice to improve the material properties of parts for demanding markets, like additive manufacturing.

However, to be as cost effective and flexible as possible HIP technology has developed towards including more process steps into the HIP system and today a modern HIP system can apply stress relieving, pore elimination, quenching and ageing directly in one combined process cycle. With advances like these, HIP technology will expand its area of use and continue to play a vital role in the powder metal production route for future demanding usage.

Why You Should Attend the Conclusion of Our Three Part Webinar Series: All You Need to Know about Modern HIP

It is commonly known that Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is the only method of post processing to eliminate defects, reduce scatter and drastically improve material properties of Additively Manufactured (AM) parts.

With the latest development of HIP equipment, the HIP process can handle the full post heat treatment process for AM parts, called High Pressure Heat Treatment. This makes modern HIP technology a very cost effective, safe and easy to use technology for additive manufacturing. The three various parts of this webinar series will cover:

Part 1 – Introduction to HIP Technology – The Basics

Part 2 – Quintus’s High Pressure Heat Treatment – Combining HIP and Conventional Heat Treatment

Part 3 – HIP and High Pressure Heat Treatment. The Enabler for AM Technology

  Challenges within metal Additive Manufacturing
  Special requirements and aspects when HIP:ing for AM
  Benefits of HIP and HPHT for AM material
  Real case studies for AM materials
