HIP Product Fabrication
Bodycote’s Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) Product Fabrication (PF) business provides customers with an alternative component manufacturing route, with value adding benefits.
The HIP PF process uses a variety of materials in powder or solid form to manufacture components with the complexity of a casting and the strength of a forging. The flexibility inherent in the HIP PF process means that combinations of materials can be used to give desired properties, enabling the production of components from metallic compositions that are difficult or impossible to forge or cast.
Bodycote is the only full capability commercial player in this market, with the world's largest network of HIP capacity serving customers around the globe.
