Hot Isostatic Pressing
Aalberts Surface Technologies
Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is a proven process for high pressure heat treatment and densification of products. HIP improves material properties such as fatigue resistance, creep, ductility, and workability of parts designed for mission-critical applications
Very little can be manufactured without heat treating, a process in which metal is heated and cooled under tight controls to improve its properties, performance, and durability.
Aalberts surface technologies has decades of technical experience and state-of-the-art resources needed for advanced HIP-process applications. Our HIP units include the proprietary Quintus URC (Uniform Rapid Cooling) feature which combines HIP and solution heat treat & age in a single process. HPHT (high pressure heat treatment) streamlines the steps involved in material densification. Processed components cool uniformly, resulting in minimal thermal distortion and non-uniform grain growth for improved parts performance. The HIP’s rapid cooling capability enhances efficiency and can reduce processing cost per unit.
If you require the highest quality, often with aggressive lead times, contact us. We can meet the stringent needs of the aerospace industry.
