The Isostatic Pressing Association (IPA), the newest of MPIF’s six associations, has posted a video introduction to the technology of hot isostatic pressing (HIP) on YouTube.
HIP, which is generally used to produce large PM parts to near-net shapes of varied complexity, is also an excellent option to densify MIM parts and castings. The HIP process can be used on metal, ceramics and composites. The 7½-minute video describes the HIP process and is aimed at introducing HIP in a practical manner.
