Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures hard and super-hard materials for a wide variety of industries and applications, including cemented carbide blanks for gear cutting and hobbing. Hyperion will showcase its gear tool blanks and many other products and manufacturing solutions at IMTS 2022, Sept. 12 to 17 in Chicago.
These new offerings include:
“Materials science innovation, technical expertise and precision manufacturing are at the heart of what we do at Hyperion, and IMTS gives us the opportunity to share that with those looking to develop longer lasting and more accurate machine tool components,” said Ron Voigt, Chief Executive Officer of Hyperion. “We are looking forward to showcasing our advancements in hard materials and manufacturing technology, including AM110 grade carbide, at IMTS.”
AM110 tungsten carbide grade lasts up to 35 percent longer when machining superalloys
Machining superalloys such as INCONEL is highly challenging due to intense heat and pressure on the tooling. Hyperion’s AM110 grade of carbide was specially engineered to balance and optimize the hardness, toughness and galling resistance required for tooling used in machining superalloys.
Testing has demonstrated AM110 end-milling tools last 35 percent longer on INCONEL workpieces than conventional tungsten carbide grades, delivering more predictable results with fewer cutting edge breaks.
Hyperion grade AM110 carbide rods are part of the company’s application-specific series of rod blanks. The primary markets for AM110 grade rods are aerospace and food preparation. They are available in a variety of dimensions and finishes and as sintered or ground to ISO h5 or h6 tolerances.
Recent acquisition enhances Hyperion’s offering of diamond and CBN products
Hyperion expanded its offering of synthetic and industrial diamond and CBN products in August with the acquisition of Premium Diamond Solutions SA, a European distributor of superabrasive materials. The transaction expands Hyperion’s portfolio of diamond and CBN mesh and micron powders, compounds and slurries, as well as enhances its superabrasives application expertise. This is the latest of seven acquisitions during the past two and a half years as Hyperion expands its product portfolio and services for customers globally.
Precision Solutions by Hyperion offers an end-to-end solution for precision-manufactured products
Launched in July, Precision Solutions by Hyperion is a first-of-its-kind business capable of creating highly specialized and precise tungsten carbide, industrial diamond, ceramic, high-speed steel and CBN products, managing the entire process from raw material selection to mass production of finished components. Leveraging the advanced, integrated capabilities of Hyperion and several of its recently acquired companies, Precision Solutions focuses on incredibly intricate, precision parts for the energy, electronics, medical and other industries where small sizes, tight tolerances and complex geometries play a significant role.
Leaders from Hyperion’s carbide rods, diamond and Precision Solutions businesses will be in booth 432324 at IMTS to discuss the new offerings.
