High-Pressure Heat Treatment, Hot Isostatic Pressing, and Additive Manufacturing Video

Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) processes are becoming more widely adopted in place of traditional castings for a variety of industrial applications. Combining key heat treatment processes with hot isostatic pressing (HIP) by utilizing fast cooling rates can benefit static properties as well as improve turn-around time for HIP processing. We tested a variety of processing combinations on Cobalt Chrome F75 components to see how the properties were affected.
