HIP technology revolutionises 3D production in aerospace and medical implants industries

HIP is a technology that is set to revolutionize the 3D printing market, which is in full expansion, having grown by 19.5% in 2021, and according to several studies, is expected to grow by around 17% per year until 2025. "By applying HIP to metal parts manufactured with 3D printing we manage to eliminate any possible defects in parts destined for very demanding sectors such as space or prosthetics," explains Rubén García, HIP Project Manager at HIPERBARIC. HIP technology subjects components to 2,000 bar of pressure and 1,400°C of temperature to improve mechanical properties such as fatigue life, resilience or ductility. For high-performance parts made by additive manufacturing or 3D printing, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) brings excellent benefits by eliminating the porosity of c...
