Quintus Technologies reports that it will supply two additional hot isostatic presses (HIPs) to China’s Anhui Yingliu Group. This comes less than three months after Anhui Yingliu inaugurated what is said to be world's largest 2000-bar HIP, also made by Quintus.
Quintus says that its HIPs can achieve 100% of maximum theoretical density and improve the ductility and fatigue resistance of critical, high-performance materials.
The presses on order will be equipped with Quintus’ uniform rapid cooling (URC) technology for simultaneous heat treatment. The two new presses, models QIH 173 L and QIH 48, feature work zones of 800 mm (32 inches) by 2500 mm (98 inches) and 375 mm (15 inches) by 1200 mm (47 inches) respectively. Adding the smaller scale presses could boost total foundry capacity while extending capabilities in material and process development, Quintus says.
Anhui Yingliu also signed a Service Level agreement with Quintus Technologies. The presses will be installed at the company’s foundry in Huoshan County, Anhui province, China.
‘There is no question that Anhui Yingliu is leading the way and setting the stage for the future growth for hot isostatic pressing and advanced material processing, not only in China but throughout Asia,’ said Peter Henning, business unit director, advanced material densification, at Quintus.
