The Center for Engineering and Industrial Development (CIDESI) in Querétaro, Mexico, has purchased and installed a Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) system from Quintus Technologies. The HIP system, a QIH-15L, is reportedly suitable for the aerospace, automotive, and energy sectors.

CIDESI is part of a System of Research Centers managed by Mexico’s National Council of Science and Technology and reportedly contributes to the development of the country’s industrial sector through research and innovation projects, as well as technology services.

The Quintus HIP system installed at CIDESI features a work zone of 7.32 inches (186 mm) in diameter and 19.69 inches (500 mm) in height, an operating temperature of 2552° F (1400° C), and pressure of 207 MPa (30,000 psi). It is equipped with Quintus’ uniform rapid cooling (URC) technology.

‘Quintus Technologies has for several years worked with universities and research institutes in the development of education in many research areas, in North America and globally,’ said Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies.
