14 - 18 October 2018

Bilbao, Spain

It has been brought to our attention that various third party companies have been contacting Euro PM2018 exhibition personnel with regards to hotel reservations in Bilbao. Please note that these companies have not been authorised to handle hotel accommodation for the Euro PM2018 Congress & Exhibition, and are not affiliated with the event, nor EPMA in any way. Although they may appear very knowledgeable about both the event and the hotels in Bilbao, we advise delegates and exhibitors to not use such companies and to be alert should they receive such a telephone call or email.

An advance reservation of rooms has been made for Euro PM2018 delegates by Bco Congresos, details of which are available on the Hotel Information page.

To book your hotel accommodation, please book via the Bco Congresos service, or book through your preferred and trusted travel agent or booking website.

HIP and Heat Treatment of AM Parts- Microstructure and Mechanical Properties and the Effect of Combined HIP and Heat Treatment Cycles Compared to Conventional Processing

Session 57 Wednesday 17 October 10:45 - 12:15

Session Chairs

Dr Susan Davies (Bodycote Hot Isostatic Pressing AB)
Mr Jim Shipley (Quintus Technologies AB)


The encapsulation and HIP technology has developed over the years to become a high-performance, high-quality and cost-effective process for the manufacture of a wide range of components such as simple shape billets for the machining of high performance PM HSS cutting tools, and the manufacture of large near net shape stainless parts for the oil and gas industry. The versatility and flexibility of the HIP process, combined with superior material properties, make it an ideal choice for new applications, among other powder metallurgy technologies.

This Special Interest Seminar continues to focus on Ni-base super alloys for powder metallurgical applications, with particular interest in AM produced parts, and the effect of microstructure and mechanical properties of some original applications of Hot Isostatic Pressing technology.
