Quintus Technologies will supply a hot isostatic press (HIP) to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tenn. ORNL will use the new HIP for research in demanding aerospace, nuclear and gas-turbine applications. The unit will be equipped with Quintus’ patented uniform rapid quenching (URQ®) technology, which enables increased productivity with optimal temperature control. URQ's advanced heat treatment of materials under pressure not only facilitates improved performance of existing alloy systems but also supports the development of novel alloy systems with unique properties that can open up entirely new markets for parts manufacturers.
