Metal-Foil Encapsulation Equipment

This equipment is used to manufacure capsels using 100 to 300µm-thick metal foil. The features are as follows:

HIP Process with a Foil Capsule

1. HIP treatment of sheeted materials

It can apply HIP treatment to even a sheeted material without any distortions or cracks because uniform pressure is transmitted throughout the metal-foil capsule. HIP treatment of sheeted materials is available as uniform pressure is applied to the capsule due to use of thin metal foil for the capsule.

2. Reduction of capsule cost

The extremely thin metal foil (100 to 300µm) helps you reduce your capsule material cost.

3. Easy removal of capusels

Capsules can be removed easily with scissors after HIP.
