HIP (hot isostatic pressing) is commonly used with superalloys.
From Wikipedia: (HIP) is a manufacturing process used to reduce the porosity of metals and increase the density of many ceramic materials. This improves the material's mechanical properties and workability.
And here's an informative video:
