The Kittyhawk team has been in the business of Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) for more than 40 years, delivering material solutions for countless industries and critical manufacturers. Our versatile HIP services involve heating materials and components to high temperatures while simultaneously applying high pressure to improve the properties of various metals. This cost-effective process can be used across a wide range of metal manufacturing applications to improve the properties of the final product, regardless of the production method used.
Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D Printing) is a process that creates a product by building it up layer by layer. Hot Isostatic Pressing can be used to improve the properties of metal materials used in Additive Manufacturing, even when components are complex. Printed metals may contain voids that can compromise strength and integrity. Expert HIP services can help eliminate porosity and other defects in the material with ease, resulting in a stronger and more reliable final product.

Sputtering metal is a manufacturing process that creates a product by depositing a thin layer of metal onto a substrate. The high pressure and temperature applied during the Hot Isostatic Pressing process can increase the density and uniformity, resulting in a more consistent and reliable final product. The uniform application and inert gas medium ensures homogeneous and quality composition. The final material is close to fully dense and mechanically robust, increasing the durability and performance of components.
Hot Isostatic Pressing is a versatile manufacturing process that can be used to improve the properties of materials in a wide range of manufacturing processes. At Kittyhawk, we specialize in Hot Isostatic Pressing and have built a reputation for delivering high-quality HIP solutions for a wide range of manufacturing applications. With decades of experience in the field, we have established ourselves as the go-to source for Hot Isostatic Pressing services and have worked with countless reputable manufacturers across industries.
