Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP)

Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP)

HIP combines very high temperature (up to 2,000°C) with inert gas under very high pressure (up to 30,000 psi) – equivalent to the Mariana Trench 11,000m deep in the Pacific Ocean. HIP is used to eliminate porosity in castings and consolidate encapsulated powders to give fully dense materials. Dissimilar materials can be bonded together to manufacture unique, cost effective components. Every week a typical Bodycote HIP plant will process many tons of titanium, aluminium, steel and superalloy castings, removing porosity and uprating the performance of parts such as turbine blades, medical implants and turbochargers.

When a project requires advanced materials technology, working with Bodycote HIP could provide the ideal development and production route, allowing the engineer to optimise conventionally formed parts and also to design components unobtainable by other means. Bodycote HIP research specialists are experienced in working with customers to develop novel materials and applications. With the largest operational capacity in the Western world, and a wide variety of sizes of equipment, Bodycote HIP is able to accommodate large volumes of small product as economically as large individual components.
