A material processing method in which components are subjected to the simultaneous application of heat and high pressure in an inert gas medium, Hot Isostatic Pressing is commonly used for the densification of metal castings. Defects and voids can be eliminated, increasing overall strength and durability without changing the shape of a part. The process meets evolving demands to produce higher quality goods while lowering production costs by improving mechanical properties, eliminating porosity, and reducing scrap rate. 

“We work in partnership with a wide variety of investment casting manufacturers,” said Brandon Creason (President of Kittyhawk), “solving complex material and design problems as part of our commitment ensuring our customers always deliver the best quality parts and products possible.”

Components of all shapes and sizes produced utilizing various investment casting methods and metal materials may receive significant benefits from Hot Isostatic Pressing—and the process is widely used across high-performance industries including aerospace and automotive applications. As new casting technologies and manufacturing methods advance the demand for Hot Isostatic Pressing, Kittyhawk will continue to collaborate with industry leaders to develop the best services possible and meet the growing needs of their valued customers.

Kittyhawk will be offering tours of their main California facility on Thursday, August 25th after the 2022 ICI World Conference & Equipment Expo. Interested parties can call 714-895-5024 or contact for more information.
