Hot Isostatic Presses – EPSI

Hot Isostatic Presses

EPSI, a world leader in custom-engineered high-pressure solutions, offers its Hot Isostatic Press Production Unit (HIP). Designed to apply accurate pressure uniformly at elevated temperatures to all surfaces, EPSI’s Hot Isostatic Presses (HIP) are ideal for the castings, ceramics, plastics, automotive, and aerospace industries. The HIP System densifies parts to heal casting defects and voids, bond similar or dissimilar materials and to form net or near-net shapes from metal, ceramic, cement and graphite powders. EPSI’s Hot Isostatic Presses (HIP) are built with inside diameters of 76 to 1,650 mm and contain pressures from vacuum to 400 MPa (58,000 psi) and temperatures as high as 2,000°C (3,632ºF).

EPSI’s Hot Isostatic Presses (HIP) are available in a variety of sizes, from pilot to large production units, and can be provided in sizes to Ø 1,650 mm (65 inch hot zone). The HIP features interchangeable furnaces for various temperatures and atmospheres to meet the customer’s production requirements, including oxygen resistant, molybdenum, and graphite heating elements. EPSI’s Hot Isostatic Presses (HIP) also offer cascade control, fast cooling or uniform fast cooling to optimize heat/cooling rates, enhanced heat treatment possibilities and productivity.
