Additive manufacturing is the newest technology to mass produce small to medium-size parts with high tolerances and quality for many industries. However, after printing, residual pores exist within the material. By applying hot isostatic pressing, pores will be eliminated and the density will increase to virtually 100% of theoretical density. This pore elimination will improve the strength, ductility and especially the fatigue properties of the material and residual stresses will also be eliminated.
