How to reduce weight on valve blocks by using NNS HIP
Utilizing PM NNS HIP on your valve blocks enables the possibility to create a more complex shaped HIP blank with the potential to remove unnecessary material, keep machining to a minimal and still keep the desired function of the valve block.
MTC Powder Solutions continues to invest in Surahammar Facility!
MTC Powder Solutions recently completed a significant upgrade to its Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) unit in its Swedish production site. The upgrade sees the HIP unit modernized to extend its capability and envelope to align with our customer’s future needs.
PM NNS HIP - The best additive manufacturing process in the world!
Powder Metallurgy Hot Isostatic Pressing was developed in the 60s and has since than developed further with possibility to manufacture NNS components with HIP. Design mindset is fundamentally similar to the AM process and why HIP, in our opinion, should be considered an AM-process with not just the possibilities that AM brings but also a technology with extensive track record.
Hydrogen-induced stress corrosion in duplex stainless steels- a short summary
Duplex stainless steels (DSS) are unrivalled in many applications where a combination of strength and corrosion resistance is required. However, despite their resistance to corrosion some failures in DSS used in seawater have been observed and explained by a phenomenon called hydrogen-induced stress corrosion (HISC).
A new era for Near-Net Shape HIP!
The pristine MTC Powder Solutions AB flags raised at the Near-Net Shape (NNS) HIP production unit in Surahammar marked a new chapter in the history books of NNS HIP components today.
A short presentation of Duplex Stainless Steels
Duplex Stainless Steels offer many advantages over traditional stainless steels at temperatures up to about 250 degrees Celsius owing to their unique combination of mechanical and corrosion properties.
Production is running at full capacity to assist customers in these uncertain times!
Despite the challenges presented to all of us at this difficult time MTC Powder Solutions is striving to maintain production at full capacity whilst allocating priority to the safety of our employees, our business partners, and in ensuring the prevention of the spread of infection.
How many welds can you remove on your manifold systems?
Utilizing hot isostatic pressing (HIP) for manifold systems the number of components and welds can be drastically reduced due to the freedom in design the technology offers.
