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.

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
