The Powder Hot Isostatic Pressing (P-HIP) Module will examine the advantages that can be gained from using PM HIP to produce high value components. It will also explore the key areas of design and manufacture for PM HIP, and the factors that must be considered when producing components using this process.

The morning of the first day, will consist of lectures focusing upon introducing PM HIP as a process, identifying the advantages of using this technology compared to more conventional routes.

The afternoon of the first day and continuing into the second day, will consist of both lectures and practical exercises. These sessions will cover the key factors that must be examined when considering production of PM HIP components. This includes; health and safety, design for HIP, understanding the costs involved in HIP, failure mode analysis and the principles of the encapsulation process.

The third and fourth day include a practical work day and tours of the Manufacturing Technology Centre encapsulation facilities and an industrial HIP site.

The fifth day consists of a final set of lectures expanding further upon HIP compaction modelling and methods of non-destructive evaluation of HIP parts. The day ends by exploring the latest trends and future of PM HIP, as well as a short assessment quiz that will consolidate the knowledge gained during the course.

For more information on Hot Isostatic Pressing, EPMA has a short introduction here.
