Bodycote expands HIP capacity in the USA

November 8, 2021

Bodycote plc, headquartered in Macclesfield, Cheshire, UK, is expanding its Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) capability in Greenville, South Carolina, USA, with two additional vessels. These are expected to be operational in the first half of 2022 and will focus on processing Additive Manufacturing components and advanced materials.

Bodycote’s Greenville site is Nadcap accredited and holds several core OEM approvals. The site consists of numerous vacuum furnaces and other capabilities suited to support AM customers. The Greenville site will continue to serve aerospace, defence, medical and general industrial customers throughout the Southeastern region.

Stephen Harris, Bodycote Group Chief Executive, stated, “We are pleased to address our customer needs by bringing HIP services closer to their facilities. With the largest HIP operational capacity in the world, our continued investment demonstrates Bodycote’s commitment to align resources to serve our customers across North America.”

Bodycote states that it operates the world’s largest network of HIP equipment, having more than fifty HIP vessels of varying sizes in multiple locations. Processing capability can accommodate components that are nominally up to 198 cm diameter by 366 cm high, and weighing over 30,000 kg.
