The Center for Engineering and Industrial Development (CIDESI) in Querétaro, Mexico, has installed a Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) produced by Quintus Technologies, Västerås, Sweden. The system, a QIH-15L HIP, is designed for use with advanced materials for demanding applications, especially within the aerospace, automotive, and energy sectors.

Founded in 1984, CIDESI is said to be one of Mexico’s most important research and innovation organisations, and plays a key role in driving technological breakthroughs for the country’s industry. It is part of a network of research centres managed by Mexico’s National Council of Science and Technology, and is certified under the lSO-9001:2008 standard and the AS-9100C standard for aerospace.

The QIH-15L HIP offers a work zone of 186 mm (7.32 in) in diameter and 500 mm (19.69 in) in height, and an operating temperature of 1400°C (2552°F). It is capable of reaching pressures of of 207 MPa (30,000 psi). It is also equipped with Quintus’ patented Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC) technology.

“Quintus Technologies has for several years worked with universities and research institutes in the development of education in many research areas, in North America and globally,” stated Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies. “We are honoured to have been selected by CIDESI to deliver this HIP system. It proves our commitment to deliver reliable HIP systems to this educational and specialised technological sector.”
