FIT Additive Manufacturing Group has acquired a Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) machine from Quintus Technologies, a Swedish high pressure technology expert.

The HIP machine will ensure that after post-processing, 3D printed metal parts pass the quality assurance tests as smoothly as possible.

Carl Fruth, CEO FIT AG, explained, “We have evaluated the requirements of 250 international industrial customers for five years, and HIP turned out as an answer to many quality issues. The results that can be achieved by combining AM and HPHT are highly encouraging. It’s beyond all question that our customers will benefit strongly by this partnership.”

“I EVEN THINK THAT ALL ADDITIVE SERIAL MANUFACTURING WILL EXPERIENCE A BIG BOOST WHEN INTEGRATING HPHT AS A POST-PROCESSING SERVICE”
