In an era where aerospace innovation consistently moves towards new horizons, the demand for more sophisticated and reliable components has never been higher. To meet that need—our team at Kittyhawk has been a premier provider of Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) services since 1981, contributing to many decades of technological evolution, and delivering unparalleled quality and performance in aerospace manufacturing.

Hot Isostatic Pressing is a process that uses high pressure and high temperatures to eliminate voids and defects in parts. This process is crucial in the aerospace industry, where every component’s integrity could mean the difference between success and failure. Aerospace applications demand parts that are not only strong and lightweight but also reliable in the most demanding environments.

The aerospace industry, with its zero-margin for error, demands nothing but the utmost in safety as well. Our role in this critical sector is clear: to provide consistent, defect-free components that are integral to the success of aircraft, space vehicles, and engines. Our advanced Hot Isostatic Pressing processes play a crucial role in this, enhancing material properties and eliminating potential compromises to component performance.

By leveraging our in-depth knowledge and advanced capabilities across our facilities, we ensure that the components we process set a standard for quality and durability while still providing a fast and economical material processing solution. This commitment to excellence is not just a part of our operation, it’s woven into the very fabric of our identity and upheld by stringent adherence to AS9100 and NADCAP standards, alongside compliance with ITAR and EAR regulations.

Working closely with industry leaders and being an approved source for industry greats like Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and many more, means we’ve solidified our position as a trusted partner in the aerospace supply chain. This trust is a testament to our ability to meet and exceed the rigorous quality requirements of industry leaders, ensuring that we not only meet the current demands of the aerospace industry but also play a role in shaping its growth.

Our Hot Isostatic Pressing services support the development of cutting-edge aerospace technology, from commercial aircraft to defense systems and beyond. We’re not just participants in the aerospace industry—we’re part of the greater team committed to delivering excellence and setting the stage for a future where more possibilities of aerospace innovation are within reach.
