Paulo purchased a hot isostatic press (HIP) from Quintus Technologies that will be installed in the Cleveland Division’s recent expansion. It will primarily support heat treatment and densification of investment castings and additively manufactured parts. The HIP has working dimensions of 26 inches in diameter x 68.9 inches high. It is capable of a maximum temperature of 2552°F and maximum pressure of 30,000 psi of argon.
Paulo’s Cleveland Division supports the aerospace and power-generation industries with heat-treatment and brazing services. The addition of the HIP will provide additive manufacturers and casting houses a one-stop shop for thermal processing.
