Combining Hot Isostatic Pressing and heat treatment: An elegant way to streamline the supply chain
Combining HIP and heat treat into a single, integrated, process offers end-users an elegant way to streamline their supply chain while also decreasing shipping and handling, decreasing energy consumption and improving the delivery time for metal parts that require both HIP and heat treatment. Continued improvement in HIP equipment from the 1970s to the present day has offered the processor and the end-user increasingly advanced process options with a recent development providing a dramatic boost in what an integrated HIP and heat treat process can deliver. Dr Stephen J Mashl reports on the state of this game-changing development.
