Project Description

This project goal is to demonstrate how tailoring Hot Isostatic Pressure of Powdered Metal (HIP/PM), coupled with advances in Additive Manufacturing (AM) has specific, measurable benefits for fabricating advanced energy system components. The objectives for the project include: 1) produce fully dense test coupons to determine the requisite material characterization and sintering protocols, 2) produce two HIP cans in A 282 with different wall thicknesses, and 3) analyze valve parts for chemical and material properties.

Project Benefits

The expected benefit of this project includes validation of AM (combining 3DP & HIP) as a viable method of producing A-282 components, acquisition of key information about cost, manufacturing challenges/opportunities, and lead-times compared to other methods including HIP/PM and casting.
