Medical Implants


The Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) technology developed by Hiperbaric offers the following advantages for the medical implant industry:

Improves material properties and performance

  • Increases the fatigue life of the implants.
  • Improves the ductility and resilience of materials.
  • Allows parts with homogeneous fine grain microstructure, without anisotropy, to be obtained.

Reaches 100% of theoretical density

  • Densifies porosities and eliminates internal material defects.
  • Homogenizes the properties of the material.
  • Allows lighter and/or more lightweight designs.

More efficient production in manufacturing processes

  • It reduces the number of parts that would not pass quality control, thus reducing costs.
  • Allows the combination of different treatments in a single HIP cycle.
  • Hiperbaric's HIP presses make the HIP process an efficient, essential process for the manufacturing of strong and durable medical implants.


Several quality standards are applied in this sector. These include the following:

  • ISO 13485:2016. Applicable quality management system for medical devices. This standard sets the requirements for manufacturers, installers and service providers of medical devices.
  • ISO 10993-1:2018. Biological evaluation of medical products. Part 1: Evaluation and testing through a risk assessment process. Focuses on the evaluation of the biocompatibility of materials used in medical instruments.
