Products manufactured via the powder metallurgy (PM) HIP NNS method include valve bodies; large structural components for aerospace; manifolds in subsea, oil and gas applications; steam turbine applications; and paper mill rolls.
Powder metallurgy HIP NNS product fabrication incorporates many types and grades of materials including, but not limited to:
- Ferritic, austenitic, martensitic and duplex stainless steels
- Low alloy steels
- Tool steels
- High temperature high strength steels
The powder metallurgy HIP NNS process enables fabrication of complicated geometries, thereby producing a component with minimized finishing operations. Bodycote’s expertise encompasses the entire process from capsule design based on the customer’s final part specifications through powder encapsulation, densification and quality assurance.
