Benefits Application & materials Process details
Joining of two incompatible materials by the HIP process with the use of a brazing interlayer.
- Enables bonding of materials with no solid state solubility
- Allows the design engineer to combine very different material properties in close proximity
- Produces bond lines free from porosity with good mechanical properties
- Creates joints superior to conventional brazing.
Application & materials
Examples of components manufactured by HIP-assisted brazing techniques include:
- Extruder screws for granulation of plastic and pharmaceutical materials
- Heavy truck and automotive parts, e.g. valve lifters and brake pads
- Components, such as heat shields and turbine disks, where HIP brazing produces parts with increased performance at higher operating temperatures.
Materials utilized include metals and cermets.
HIP-assisted brazing utilizes the technology of encapsulation and HIP to achieve superior braze properties when needed.
