Are you attending RAPID + TCT 2023? As North America’s largest and most influential additive manufacturing event, RAPID + TCT is the perfect opportunity to continue showcasing the benefits of Hot Isostatic Pressing. Join us at BOOTH #3655 to learn more about Kittyhawk about our services—we hope to see you there!

RAPID + TCT offers a diverse range of sessions, workshops, and keynote presentations that cover the latest advancements in 3D printing and additive manufacturing. You can find Kittyhawk at McCormick Place in the West Hall during the event. Our team members will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about Hot Isostatic Pressing and the applications of our technology.

Hot Isostatic Pressing is a post-processing technique that can improve the mechanical properties of 3D printed parts. By subjecting components to high pressure and temperature in an inert gas environment, HIP can eliminate internal defects such as porosity and improve density and strength. This makes Hot Isostatic Pressing an ideal solution for additive manufacturing, where achieving consistent part quality is essential.

In addition to improving part quality, Hot Isostatic Pressing can also enable the production of complex geometries that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional manufacturing techniques. HIP can reduce assembly time and costs while improving overall part performance.

With over 40 years of experience in the industry, Kittyhawk is one of the most trusted names when it comes to Hot Isostatic Pressing. We operate two facilities on the West Coast, in California and Oregon. In addition, we maintain a partnership with Solar Atmospheres, a heat treat company that simplifies outsourced HIP/HT for customers.

If you’re interested in learning more about how our technology can benefit your specific additive manufacturing needs, we encourage you to reach out to our team and schedule a meeting in advance. Our team members are always happy to answer any questions you may have about Hot Isostatic Pressing and its applications.
