No aerospace event would be complete without Hot Isostatic Pressing solutions—so the Kittyhawk team will be attending the Farnborough International Airshow Exhibition this year from July 18-22 to take part in one of the largest aerospace conferences in the world. FIA2022 will bring aerospace manufacturers, leaders, and suppliers together in the UK once more to build connections and create change.
Often operating in demanding environments that require top-tier parts, some of the most advanced aerospace manufacturers in the world choose to rely on Hot Isostatic Pressing services by Kittyhawk. During the Hot Isostatic Pressing process metal parts are subjected to the simultaneous application of heat and high pressure in an inert gas medium. The pressure is uniform in all directions or “isostatic” and can be used to remove defects in components to deliver consistent and defect-free parts for aircraft, space vehicles, and engines.
The Hot Isostatic Pressing process results in higher quality components with improved mechanical properties at a competitive cost. Tooling is simple and inexpensive, scrap is dramatically reduced and machining is minimized. Additionally, because Hot Isostatic Pressing is not size or shape dependent it can be used on a wide variety of components, allowing for increased design flexibility.
Kittyhawk is Source Approved by many of the most trusted names in the aerospace industry. We also take pride in our ISO 9001 and AS 9100 certifications, along with our NADCAP accreditation for Hot Isostatic Pressing.
Family owned and operated in the United States—Kittyhawk, Inc. was founded in 1981 to provide premium Hot Isostatic Pressing services to a growing number of critical industries. The Kittyhawk team serves organizations from the aerospace, defense, automotive, oil & gas, firearms, medical, commercial industries and more with quick and efficient turnaround of parts run to exact specifications.
