Hiperbaric (Hall 12.0, Stand B119) will present its HIP technology at the FormNext exhibition, which takes place from November 7 to 11 in Frankfurt. Hiperbaric, a global leader in high-pressure technology since 1999, designs, manufactures, and markets Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) industrial equipment for the most demanding industries.

Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) is a post-processing technology that involves applying high levels of pressure (up to 2,000 bar/200 MPa) and temperature (up to 2,000°C) to a wide range of metal and ceramic components. This technology is becoming a key factor for high-performance components manufactured through 3D printing or additive manufacturing in the aerospace, medical, and energy sectors. HIP eliminates porosity and densifies 3D-printed metal materials, enhancing mechanical properties such as ductility, resilience, and fatigue life. The main advantages are the elimination of defects, which significantly reduces non-conformities, and compliance with the most stringent standards.

This technology is poised to revolutionize the 3D printing market, which is in rapid expansion and is projected to grow by around 17% annually until 2025. "By applying HIP to 3D-printed metal parts, we can eliminate any potential defects in components destined for highly demanding sectors like aerospace or prosthetics," explains Rubén García, HIP Project Manager at Hiperbaric.

Hiperbaric offers a range of five compact, versatile, efficient, and 100% safe Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) equipment. The Hiperbaric 20 HIP press is the company's latest innovation, the smallest and easiest to install. It allows multiple configurations and operating modes in a single machine. It can be equipped with two types of furnaces: molybdenum for temperatures up to 1400°C or graphite that reaches up to 2000°C. The Hiperbaric 20 HIP press offers competitive and reliable value. Its versatility allows for synergistic combination with a wide variety of manufacturing techniques, including additive manufacturing, metal injection molding, or powder metallurgy, among others.

All presses are developed to achieve maximum reliability and performance, incorporating "Fast cooling" technology, which allows for quick cooling with argon, increasing productivity, obtaining the desired microstructure in the parts, and reducing costs through faster and uniform cooling.

Hiperbaric designs and manufactures HIP presses that are safe and high-performance, thanks to their Wire Winding and Fast Cooling technologies. Hiperbaric's Fast Cooling technology uses a series of technical improvements in the construction of the HIP vessel and furnace design to extract heat from the heat-treated load at a uniformly fast rate. This is made possible by Hiperbaric's wire-wound vessel. Additionally, a heat exchanger located in the top plug is key for dissipating heat to the cooling system.

Industrial Press Range: In addition to the Hiperbaric 20 HIP press, Hiperbaric offers the following industrial presses:

  • Hiperbaric 30-38-42 HIP: Designed to cover production volumes for modern AM component manufacturers as well as treatment companies looking to offer the HIP process to other firms.
  • Hiperbaric 67 HIP: This unit is designed to cover large parts processed with HIP technology in a complete plug-and-play solution provided by Hiperbaric.

Hiperbaric's HIP Innovation Center: The company's headquarters in Burgos houses the first HIP Innovation Center in southern Europe, where researchers test new material developments using HIP and explore the opportunities this technology brings to additive manufacturing.
