Quintus Technologies Mega-HIP marks Stack Metallurgical Group's entry into hot isostatic pressing

Portland, OR-based Stack Metallurgical Group is expanding its existing heat treating and metal processing portfolio with the addition of a Mega-HIP from Quintus Technologies.

The Hot Isostatic Press, model QIH 286 M URC, is equipped with Quintus Technologies' proprietary uniform rapid cooling and features a large-capacity work zone of 63 inches (1,600 mm) in diameter and 102 inches (2,591 mm) in height, allowing densification of large batches at 29,000 psi (2,000 bar) and a maximum operating temperature of 2280°F (1,250°C).

A trusted heat treating and metal processing partner to a range of quality-critical industries including aerospace, medical implant, and power generation, Stack completed a comprehensive evaluation of the HIP market before deciding to add the complementary service, relates Doug Puerta, CEO, Stack Metallurgical Group.

"As a new entrant into the HIP market, it was critical that we continue to have the ability to offer a premium combination of quality and delivery to our clients," says Mr. Puerta. "Quintus has given us the confidence and ability to do this."

The QIH 286 Mega-HIP satisfies Stack's demanding criteria for output quality, operational performance, and cost-effectiveness. The URC design enables all casting areas to cool uniformly, minimizing thermal distortion and non-uniform grain growth. Heating and cooling the workload only once, in a single cycle, enhances efficiency and dramatically reduces per-unit processing costs. In addition, the press offers significant savings in space, energy, and infrastructure investment.

The Mega-HIP order includes full installation and commissioning at Stack's brand-new 25,000 sq. ft. facility in Albany, OR, along with a five-year Quintus Care agreement, a comprehensive program that assures safe, trouble-free press operation and optimized press functionality at a fixed annual cost. Quintus Care service includes rapid remote diagnostics, guaranteed availability of spare and wear parts, and valuable support in tool design and forming processes.

"It is a very rigorous support and preventative maintenance program," says Mr. Puerta, continuing, "Quintus' experience in manufacturing industry-leading high-pressure solutions, combined with their ability to provide long-term engineering and applications support, makes them the ideal partner for Stack Metallurgical Group."

"Stack's commitments to customers and their business objectives align with our own business approach," notes Jan Soderstrom, CEO of Quintus Technologies. "We are very pleased to play a role in the expansion of their heat treating and metal processing portfolio."
