Quintus to supply two more HIPs

Quintus Technologies will soon be supplying two additional Hot Isostatic Presses (HIPs) to the China’s Anhui Yingliu Group. Hot Isostatic Pressing, is a proven technology for heat treatment, consolidation of powder, and removal of porosity from castings. It can be applied to metals, ceramics, composites, and plastics.

“The interest in Hot Isostatic Pressing is continuously increasing, and when a well-known company like Anhui Yingliu Group combines its broad material competence with the most advanced and productive way of processing materials, it is a recipe for success,â€? comments Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies.

The presses on order will be equipped with Quintus’ patented Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC) technology for simultaneous heat treatment, assuring efficient and cost-effective production without compromising on quality.

Anhui Yingliu’s initial Quintus press features a work zone of 1600 mm (63 inches) in diameter and 2500 mm (98 inches) in height, making it the world’s largest in its pressure and temperature class. It is ideal for the production of large aircraft engine casings and other critical core components. The presses will be installed at the company’s foundry in Huoshan County, Anhui province.
