Use the HIP process for cladding and joining parts - expect stronger bonding, improved density of sprayed coatings and welds, plus reductions in net component costs



 
 
 
In today’s market, re-casting components is not financially viable. HIP’ing may be used to recover castings with microporosity and voids.

 
 
 
HIP achieves zero porosity in PM parts and leads to enhanced mechanical properties, cost reductions and enhanced design possibilities.

 
 
 
Hot Isostatic Pressing

Over the past 50 years, Hot Isostatic Pressing has evolved from a research curiosity to a proven process employed by thousands of manufacturers around the world to improve the performance of a wide variety of parts and materials.

Hot Isostatic Pressing (often referred to as HIP, HIPing or the component as being HIPed) is a widely used process for removing internal porosity in cast products, forming and densifying powder metallurgy products and in diffusion bonding parts together.

Using a high pressure inert gas to exert ‘isostatic’ pressure (uniform pressure is applied to the product in all directions simultaneously) together with high temperature, internal porosity and voids are eliminated and a homogeneous microstructure is achieved.

HIP improves mechanical properties and allows engineers to produce their products in all shapes and sizes with often complex geometries from a wide range of materials including metals, metal powders, ceramics and composite materials.
