A wide range of organizations involved in Additive Manufacturing rely on Hot Isostatic Pressing by Kittyhawk to deliver premium components. Increasingly popular 3D printing processes permit the creation of complex designs and shapes—but internal defects are still an important concern due to the nature of developing methods. Printed components often contain voids or other negative material properties that may compromise overall strength and integrity
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. It not only results in higher quality parts and improved properties, but also delivers results at greatly reduced costs compared to other solutions. For aerospace, defense, medical, and other high performance applications Hot Isostatic Pressing is critical to ensure that material is optimized.
