Quintus Technologies has opened a new Quintus Application Center at its headquarters in Västerås, Sweden. Supported by a team of specialists, customers will have access to a range of equipment with the aim of developing production processes and methods to optimise productivity.
In addition to meeting and training facilities, the centre is equipped with a Quintus Hot Isostatic Press (HIP). With typical pressures from 1,035 to 2,070 bar (15,000 to 30,000 psi) and temperatures up to 2,000°C (4,000°F), HIP can achieve 100% of maximum theoretical density and improve the ductility and fatigue resistance of critical, high-performance materials. The centre also has a Fluid Cell Press, with an additional Deep Draw Press scheduled later this year, for sheet metal forming applications.
At the Application Center the Quintus team, together with the customer, can perform pre-studies, validate, simulate, and verify processes and materials. Quintus also arranges technical seminars and can provide the training needed to implement new solutions and products. As an additional service, Quintus can offer material testing together with an external partner to evaluate chemical composition, microstructure, porosity, mechanical properties and fatigue properties of the tested samples.
