Thermal processing services provider Bodycote plc, headquartered in Macclesfield, Cheshire, UK, reports that it has expanded its Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) capability with two additional vessels at its site in Greenville, South Carolina, USA. The two vessels are expected to be in operation by the end of 2022 and will expand the company’s HIP capacity to focus on developments in Additive Manufacturing and advanced materials.

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

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 in diameter by 366 cm high, and weighing over 30,000 kg.

Stephen Harris, Bodycote Group Chief Executive, “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.”
