Accurate Brazing Corporation, a specialised heat treating solutions provider based in Goffstown, New Hampshire, USA, a subsidary of Aalberts Industries N.V., the Netherlands, is expanding its facility in Greenville County, South Carolina, USA, with the installation of a new Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) from Quintus Technologies, Västerås, Sweden.

Accurate Brazing will upgrade approximately 20,000 ft2 of its facility in order to install the new HIP and expand its thermal processing capabilities. The QIH 122 M URC® HIP is equipped with Quintus’ proprietary uniform rapid cooling (URC), a feature said to improve the material properties, including ductility and stress resistance, of parts designed for mission-critical applications, which are increasingly being produced by Additive Manufacturing. 

“We chose Quintus equipment because of the advanced technology and the versatility of the design,” commented Steven Francis, President, Accurate Brazing. “In today’s manufacturing environment, service businesses like ours need to constantly improve our capabilities, especially when it comes to meeting the tight timelines of the aircraft and ground turbine industries. The new Quintus press will allow us to expand our product offering and compress overall lead times for our customers.”

The two companies are also said to have entered into a marketing agreement which will see them work together to broaden the use of high pressure, high temperature heat treatment. Accurate Brazing will invest $13 million in expanding its heat treatment facility, with work on the upgrade expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2020. 

Francis added, “Accurate Brazing is known for its unique expertise, capacity, and equipment to take new programs and get them into production quickly. The addition of the new Quintus press is a natural progression for our company to better serve our customers.”
