Recent trends in Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP): Processing and applications

The processing of primarily large Powder Metallurgy (PM) near-net shapes such as superalloys, tool steels, stainless steels, and titanium by Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) has been used extensively since 1970 and an estimated 1000 HIP systems have been installed since that time. HIP systems are also used for defect healing of castings, diffusion bonding and cladding, and fully densifying hardmetals (cemented carbides). We review trends in HIP process technology and application trends for powder materials.
