Detailed Description

This is a key part of through-processing, from alloy design to component manufacture, and an essential process for aerospace components, for example. The HIP has a 150mm diameter x 300mm long hot zone that is perfect for scaling up samples.


In powder metallurgy, HIP allows us to compress a volume of metal powder at such high temperature and pressures, that through a combination of deformation, creep and diffusion you actually create a product with an homogenous annealed microstructure (compact solid) with minimal or no impurities in the materials.
