When we consider the automotive industry and the technology that enables it, many of us think solely of supercharged engines roaring beneath aerodynamic frames as drivers circle noisy racetracks in quest of a checkered flag.
Isostatic Pressing Services knows all about it. High-end automotive and motor racing components, such as cylinder heads, valves and turbocharger rotors are hot isostatically pressed. This pushes the performance limits of these engine components to the extremes of high loads and high temperatures.
Those impressive machines and the HIPing processes that help build them certainly play an essential role in the evolution of automotive technology and its expansion and integration into the mainstream.
Our operating capabilities are up to 1260 C and 30,000 psi.
We’ll soon add another HIP system. Stay tuned!
For instance, even everyday family automobiles benefit from the HIPing process. How? Just to take one example, the HIPing process improves turbo rotors for small, high-efficiency engines.
Casting parts and solidifying and improving engine components for the automotive industry is a big part of what we and our sister companies do.
Hot isostatic pressing continues to prove itself an invaluable part of the automotive production process, especially for these types of complex and high-performance applications.
