Quintus Technologies, Västerås, Sweden, has supplied a Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) to Pankl Racing Systems for installation in its new Pankl Additive Manufacturing Competence Center (PAMCC) in Kapfenberg, Austria. The QIH48 is expected to complement Pankl’s facilities for the HIPing of AM parts for high-performance automotive and aviation customers.

The PAMCC is an initiative of Pankl Racing Systems in collaboration with Voestalpine/Böhler Edelstahl, EOS and Quintus. “As market leaders in our industry, we need the best equipment and best partners for our advanced AM production,” stated Stefan Seidel, CTO of Pankl Racing Systems.

The press is equipped with Quintus’ patented Uniform Rapid Cooling (URC®) and Uniform Rapid Quenching (URQ®) technologies for cost-effective production and combined HIP and heat treatment, making it suitable for advanced AM process development in the context of PAMCC.

Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies, commented, “High-speed, high-tech, high-quality–we are impressed with this commitment of Pankl to their customers and their own objectives and happy to become part of their effort to broaden the application fields for AM in the racing car industry.”

“Quintus’ capability to deliver an easy-to-install, compact HIP system in a very fast time is very important for rolling out our AM strategy and business plan. We are looking forward to adding the Quintus HIP to our production portfolio,” concluded Wolfgang Plasser, Pankl Racing Systems CEO.
