A one day Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) event will take place in Dijon, France, December 3, 2015 to coincide with the installation of a new HIP unit in Dijon.
The event, organised by Frédéric Bernard (University of Burgundy), Adeline Riou (Erasteel), and Yves Bienvenu (École des Mines de Paris), will include around ten academic and industrial presentations related to the aerospace, nuclear and oil sectors. A visit to the laboratory housing the new HIP unit will also be included.

HIP technology enables the production of large PM products that cannot be manufactured by any other process, and the development of ever larger HIP systems is enabling the manufacture of significantly larger components. Such large scale systems present new opportunities for the industry and Dr Stephen J Mashl outlines the development of HIP systems and considers the potential for large PM products. Download here
