Quintus Technologies supplied a Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) to Pankl Racing Systems in their new Pankl Additive Manufacturing Competence Center (PAMCC) in Kapfenberg, Austria. The QIH48 will complement Pankl’s heat treatment facilities for HIP post treatment of AM parts for their high-performance car and aviation customers and affirms Pankl’s position as Center-of-Excellence for Metal-AM within the KTM Industries group.
The PAMCC is an initiative of Pankl Racing Systems in collaboration with Voestalpine/Böhler Edelstahl, EOS and Quintus Technologies.
“As market leaders in our industry, we need the best equipment and best partners for our advanced AM production,” says Stefan Seidel, CTO of Pankl Racing Systems.
The press is equipped with Quintus’ patented Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC®) and Uniform Rapid Quenching (URQ®) technologies for cost-effective production and combined HIP and heat treatment, suitable for advanced AM process development in the context of PAMCC.
“High-speed, high-tech, high-quality--we are impressed with this commitment of Pankl to their customers and their own objectives and happy to become part of their effort to broaden the application fields for AM in the racing car industry,” says Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies.
“Quintus’ capability to deliver an easy-to-install, compact HIP system in a very fast time is very important for rolling out our AM strategy and business plan. We are looking forward to adding the Quintus HIP to our production portfolio,” says Wolfgang Plasser, CEO of Pankl Racing Systems.
