Hot Isostatic Pressing
All of the Sagittite® range of materials are produced via the Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIPing) process.
This powder metallurgy technique uses high temperature, pressure and gas to combine metal powder to form a solid structure.
Powders consolidated via this method have particular structural attributes which offer optimised mechanical properties.
This process allows AIMS to craft uniquely tailored materials that cannot be produced in any other way.
We would be happy to advise you on how powder metallurgy HIPing could benefit your project.
Containment, or ‘cans’, are the holder for the metal powder during the HIPing process, allowing it to be consolidated into a specific part shape.
Cans are produced to a very high standard in order to withstand the extreme temperatures and gas pressures encountered during the HIP process.
As the design and construction of the containment is fundamental to achieving optimum dimensions AIMS is proud of being able to provide customers with accurate Net-Shape containment.
