AIMS to showcase its advances in near net shaping at HIP 2014

April 7, 2014

Advanced Interactive Materials Science Limited (AIMS), located in Peterborough, UK, will be showcasing the company’s near net shape capabilities and its Sagittite® range of nickel based alloys at the 11th Hot Isostatic Pressing Conference and Exhibition (HIP ‘14). Organised by the International HIP Committee, the global event takes place in Stockholm, Sweden from 9-13 June.

AIMS Technical Director, Geoff Archer, will also be presenting a paper on the functional structuring of components via diffusion techniques. “HIP ‘14 is one of the most respected conferences of its kind and I’m honoured to have the opportunity to present a paper,” stated Archer.

AIMS has been established for ten years and its primary discipline is the design, development and manufacture of specialist Powder Metallurgy products. The majority of the products are consolidated by hot Isostatic pressing (HIPing) or a combination of cold Isostatic pressing (CIPing) and HIPing.

“Over the last 12 months AIMS has been enjoying growth with overseas sales showing the sharpest rise.  We continue to refine our near net shape capabilities, which enables metal powders to be consolidated close to finished size, thus enabling components to be manufactured without the need for second stage machining. This exhibition will give us the opportunity to demonstrate the advancements we have made in this area,” added Archer. 

The company offers a unique range of PM nickel based alloys targeted at high wear and corrosion resistance, marketed under the name Sagittite.

“At the leading edge of manufacturing technology, the near net shaping techniques enhance the saving of energy, materials and labour costs, and allows complex structures of metal matrix composite material,” stated AIMS’ Sales Director Paul Young, who will also be present at HIP’14.
