In these systems, carbide parts with a wide variety of powder properties can be sintered to quasi-ideal density. However, there are also carbide grades for which even higher sintering pressures are required. Those are sintered conventionally in vacuum and compacted in a very expensive, separate HIP process. PVA has now launched a new COD system in production size for such demands, which, thanks to the higher process pressure of up to 200 bar, can eliminate the need for costly post-HIPing.
