New emerging technologies such as additive manufacturing puts HIP in focus for achieving high productivity and superior mechanical properties for new applications in various industries. The combination of both processes has been a trend for the last few years, especially for critical spare parts, bringing a visible saving of delivery time and cost with improved quality.

This Special Interest Seminar will present the future of HIP, together with optimisation of AM part properties. Case studies from the racing, marine and offshore industries will be in focus, and the influence of manufacturing and thermal post-processing on mechanical properties will be investigated.
