Experience from HIP and Heat treatment of Printed Inconnel 718 and Ti6Al4 – Presented by Mats Sjöstedt, Quintus Technologies AB, at 3D Printing Materials Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.
Parts that are printed and have a critical application are always requested to be treated in a Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) to remove defects to achieve a robust and stable production quality. Many printed alloys are also requested to be Heat-Treated to receive a desired microstructure for best static properties.
Quintus Technologies AB have conducted several studies were the HIP and HT has been combined in one HIP-furnace to reduce cost, lead time and improve control of the treatment. In this Presentation we will share some of the experience received from studies conducted on Inconel 718 and Ti6Al4 .
What drives you?
Industrializing of additive manufacturing by using HIP + HT = HIPHT
Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
They will learn how to get a more stable production quality at a lower cost.
What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Making the process more stable and easier to use for the product development engineers will enable “Design for AM”
What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Increasing the use of AM
What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Old production sites using existing standards not tailored and adapted to AM
The new HPHT (High Pressure Heat Treatment) will make AM robust and economical competitive and more available for the industry
