HIP heat treatment is commonly used in the Aerospace and Medical industries to improve material performance. We work closely with our US-based partner to provide our customers with access to this service. The HIP process puts components under high pressure and temperature to improve the internal structure.
For highly loaded or dynamically loaded thin-walled geometries, our team advises HIP heat treatment and qualification with physical testing. For the best material performance, HIP should be used in conjunction with surface finishing to improve both the inside and outside of the material. HIP will typically require an additional 2 weeks of lead time to be processed.
