Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is a process to densify powders or cast and sintered parts in a furnace at high pressure and high temperatures. The applied pressure provides isostropic properties and 100% densification which has become a viable and high performance alternative to conventional processes such as forging, casting and machining in many applications. Hot Isostatic Pressing is a competitive and proven manufacturing process for the production of complex and highly specified components, particularly in sectors that have highly demanding environments such as aerospace, offshore, energy and medical.
The 2019 HIP Seminar is titled "Conventional HIP and Rapid Cool HIP: Developments in Productivity, Material Property and Microstructural Relationships" and will be hosted in Belgium on 11-12 February 2019. The seminar will feature presentations and case studies from industry experts plus a site visit to EPSI see their facilities.
More information about the 2019 HIP Seminar will be available in due course. To stay up to date, please join the mailing list.
