What is Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP)?

Hot Isostatic Pressing is a material processing method in which components are subjected to the simultaneous application of heat and high pressure in an inert gas medium to improve their mechanical properties.

The process eliminates voids to increase density, creates high strength bonds, and is a high-tech, high-quality and cost-effective solution for improving the production of metal parts.

Industry leading organizations involved in additive, casting, metal injection mold, near net shape, and sputtering manufacturing rely on Hot Isostatic Pressing by Kittyhawk to deliver premium components.
