Additional HIPs round out foundry’s world-class capabilities for processing advanced, high-quality cast components

Adding two new HIPs represents another step forward in the Yingliu Group’s drive to attain a leading position providing a wide range of advanced products and services to the aerospace and nuclear industries.

Quintus Technologies will supply two additional Hot Isostatic Presses (HIPs) to China’s Anhui Yingliu Group. Coming less than three months after Anhui Yingliu inaugurated the world's largest 2000-bar HIP, also manufactured by Quintus, the order marks another step forward in the Yingliu Group’s drive to attain a leading position providing a wide range of advanced products and services to the aerospace and nuclear industries.

A proven technology for heat treatment, consolidation of powder, and removal of porosity from castings,Hot Isostatic Pressing can be applied to metals, ceramics, composites, and plastics. Quintus HIPs achieve 100% of maximum theoretical density and improve the ductility and fatigue resistance of critical, high-performance materials, while offering unmatched productivity.

“The interest in Hot Isostatic Pressing is continuously increasing, and when a well-known company like Anhui Yingliu Group combines its broad material competence with the most advanced and productive way of processing materials, it is a recipe for success,” comments Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies.

The presses on order will be equipped with Quintus’ patented Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC) technology for simultaneous heat treatment, assuring efficient and cost-effective production without compromising quality--a requirement that extends from demanding premium suppliers to similarly exacting customers in the aerospace, nuclear power, and oil and gas sectors.

Anhui Yingliu’s initial Quintus press features a work zone of 1600 mm (63 inches) in diameter and 2500 mm (98 inches) in height, making it the world’s largest in its pressure and temperature class. Commissioned in early December 2015, it is ideal for the production of large aircraft engine casings and other critical core components. 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 significantly boosts total foundry capacity while extending capabilities in material and process development and offering pressing opportunities for multiple applications with an array of materials.

Anhui Yingliu also signed a Service Level agreement with Quintus Technologies to ensure highest availability and robust operations. The presses will be installed at the company’s foundry in Huoshan County, Anhui province.

“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,” concludes Peter Henning, Business Unit Director, Advanced Material Densification, at Quintus.
