Quintus Technologies to supply two more Hot Isostatic Presses to China’s Anhui Yingliu Group
March 9, 2016
Quintus Technologies has announced it will supply two additional Hot Isostatic Presses (HIPs) to China’s Anhui Yingliu Group. The new presses will be installed at the company’s foundry in Huoshan County, Anhui province and the order comes less than three months after Anhui Yingliu inaugurated the world’s largest 2000-bar HIP, also manufactured by Quintus.
The two new presses, models QIH 173 L and QIH 48, will feature work zones of 800 mm x 2500 mm and 375 mm x 1200 mm respectively. They will be equipped with Quintus’ patented Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC) technology for simultaneous heat treatment, assuring efficient and cost-effective production without compromising quality.
“The interest in Hot Isostatic Pressing is continuously increasing, and when a well-known company like Anhui Yingliu Group combines its broad material competence with the most advanced and productive way of processing materials, it is a recipe for success,” stated Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies.
As a proven technology for heat treatment, consolidation of powder and removal of porosity from castings, Hot Isostatic Pressing can be applied to metals, ceramics, composites, and plastics. Quintus HIPs achieve 100% of maximum theoretical density and improve the ductility and fatigue resistance of critical, high-performance materials, while offering unmatched productivity.
“There is no question that Anhui Yingliu is leading the way and setting the stage for the future growth for Hot Isostatic Pressing and Advanced Material Processing, not only in China but throughout Asia,” concludes Peter Henning, Business Unit Director, Advanced Material Densification, at Quintus.
