Hiperbaric presents Hiperbaric 20 HIP (2,000 bar and 2,000°C), with a compact and versatile design for small productions and R&D works.
Hiperbaric, global leader in High Pressure Technologies since 1999, designs, manufactures and markets industrial Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) equipment for the most demanding industries.
Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) is a post-processing technology that involves applying high levels of pressure (up to 2,000 bar/ 200 MPa) and temperature (up to 2,000°C) to a wide range of metal and ceramic components. This technology is becoming a key enabler for 3D or high-performance additive manufactured components in the aerospace, medical and energy sectors. HIP manages to eliminate porosity and densify 3D printed metallic materials, improving mechanical properties such as ductility, resilience and fatigue life. The main advantages are the elimination of defects, which drastically reduces the number of nonconformities, and compliance with the most demanding standards.
HIP is a technology that is set to revolutionize the 3D printing market, which is in full expansion and according to several studies will grow by around 17% per year until 2025. “By applying HIP to metal parts manufactured with 3D printing, we are able to eliminate any possible defects in components for very demanding sectors such as space or prosthetics,” explains Rubén García, HIP Project Manager at Hiperbaric.
Hiperbaric 20 HIP, Hiperbaric’s latest innovation
Hiperbaric has a range of five compact, versatile, efficient and 100% safe hot isostatic presses. Hiperbaric 20 HIP press is the company’s latest innovation. It is the smallest and easiest to install.
It allows several configurations and operating modes in a single machine. It can be equipped with two types of furnace: molybdenum furnace for temperatures up to 1400°C or graphite furnace up to 2000°C. Hiperbaric 20 HIP press is a competitive and reliable value proposition. Its versatility allows it to be combined synergistically with a wide variety of manufacturing techniques such as additive manufacturing technology, metal injection molding, powder metallurgy and others.
All presses are developed to achieve maximum reliability and performance, and incorporate ‘Fast cooling’ technology, which allows rapid cooling with argon, increasing productivity, obtaining the desired microstructure in the parts and reducing costs thanks to a faster and more uniform cooling speed.
Range of Industrial Presses:
Hiperbaric has the following industrial presses in addition to the Hiperbaric 20 HIP:
- Hiperbaric 30-38-42 HIP: Designed for covering production volumes out of modern AM components manufacturers but also for treatment companies that are looking for offering HIP process to other companies.
- Hiperbaric 67 HIP: this unit has been designed to cover large parts processed with HIP technology in a complete plug and play solution provided by Hiperbaric.
Hiperbaric will present its HIP technology at FormNext, November 7 -11 in Frankfurt.
