Combining Metal AM and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP): application and process innovations

A technical session at the Euro PM2017 conference, held in Milan, Italy, October 1-5, 2017, investigated three different concepts in processes that combine metal Additive Manufacturing with Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP). In the following report, Dr David Whittaker reviews three papers that consider the use of SLM for the manufacture of HIP capsules, HIP as a final densification process in AM, and finally HIP as a process to join EBM processed components into larger structures.
