Additive manufacturing Aerospace High Pressure Heat Treatment Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) Material densification Powder Metallurgy

AM Pioneer Sintavia will use HIP in production of critical aerospace and defense parts. The model QIH15L press will give Sintavia serial production capability for metal parts that meet the exacting quality control standards required by the aerospace and defence industy.

"Without HIP technology, additively manufactured parts are susceptible to porosity and lack of fusion. HIP allows for near 100% net-density parts", states Sintavia founder Brian Neff, who recognized the promise of AM, also known as 3D printing, during a long career in aviation and parts manufacturing."
