The HIP can accommodate the size requirements for production of large aircraft engine casings.

Quintus Technologies (formerly Avure Technologies) has installed a hot isostatic press (HIP) at the Anhui Yingliu Group Huoshan Casting Co Ltd foundry in Anhui province, China.

The new press, model QIH 1.6 x 2.5–2000–1400M URC, operaties at a pressure of 200 MPA (29,000 psi) and temperatures up to 1400°C (2552°F). It can produce complex components with improved fatigue strength and extended service life, the company says. 

The HIP has a work zone of 1600 mm (63 inches) in diameter and 2500 mm (98 inches) in height which can accommodate the size requirements for production of large aircraft engine casings and core components for nuclear power, marine engineering, metallurgy, and other applications.
