Workshop focuses on HIP processing of materials for aggressive environments

October 10, 2011

A one day workshop entitled “HIP Processing of Materials for Aggressive Environments” will take place on 16 November 2011 at the Riverside Centre in Derby, UK. The course is organised by IOM Communications on behalf of the Particulate Engineering and High Temperature Materials Committees of Materials Science and Technology Division of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, with support from the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA).

Performance engineering industries face the challenges of ensuring product capability and reliability under a range of extreme environments. These can range from high temperatures & pressures in turbines through automotive conditions to sea-bed oil & gas applications and many others, all involving combinations of temperature, pressure, friction, wear, corrosion, stress and impact conditions.

The course will showcase the proven ability of the rapidly developing Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) sector to provide solutions for products operating in such conditions. It will bring together a range of world leading experts from industry and academia who will take part in a series of presentations followed by question and answer sessions.

The programme includes the following presentations:

  • HIP’ing – The Process and what you can do with it

    Susan Davies, Bodycote HIP Ltd
  • An HIP Future – The Latest Developments in HIP Technology

    Anders Eklund, Avure
  • An Alternative Fabrication Technology for Complex Shapes

    Louis Lherbier, Carpenter Tech
  • The Optimisation and Exploitation of the HIP Process by Industry

    Geoff Archer, AIMS Ltd
  • Offshore Applications of HIP

    Martin Bjurström/Mats Petersson, Sandvik
  • Nickel base Superalloys by HIP

    Gerard Raisson, Aubert & Duval
  • Properties of HIP vs Cast

    Isaac Chang, Birmingham University

  • Process Fundamentals and Future Challenges

    Christoph Broeckmann, Aachen University
  • High Temperature Aero-Power industry

    Mark Hardy, Rolls-Royce
  • PM Hip Components for Oil and Gas and Other Demanding Applications

    Pekka Siitonen, Metso – Finland
  • Open forum discussion

    Mick Steeper, Siemens VAI Metals Technologies Ltd
