October 28, 2020

Heat treatment specialist Solar Atmospheres of California, Fontana, California, USA, and Kittyhawk, a Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) company headquartered in Garden Grove, California, USA, have announced a strategic partnership for heat treating and HIP services.

Founded in 1981, Kittyhawk provides HIP services to companies in the aerospace, commercial, military, medical, automotive, firearms and oil & gas industries.

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.
