Quintus Technologies installed this hot isostatic pressing unit for a Japanese manufacturer. It’s described as the largest HIP in the world.

The HIP Technology of the Moment

Metalcasters may find that hot isostatic pressing is not only a way to make casting imperfections disappear, but an opportunity to alter their own progress All sides at once Alcoa’s big unit Full "densification" Heat treating, too

No casting is perfect, but in the effort to achieve some near facsimile of perfection metalcasters are embracing a range of technologies that are outside typical functions of foundries. Heat-treating and impregnation are two notable examples of this. Another is hot isostatic pressing (HIP.)

Hot isostatic pressing is used to reduce the porosity and increase the density of castings and other metal parts; additive manufactured or 3D printed parts are an area of some increasing ac
