HiETA Technologies launches Additive Manufacturing Tech Centre

Posted on 27 Oct 2015 by The Manufacturer

HiETA Technologies Ltd is a design and manufacturing company exploiting the technology of metal Additive Manufacturing (AM).

The opening of the centre will allow HiETA Technologies to bring its design and production teams all under the roof of the new 207 sqm facility in the Bristol & Bath Science Park.

HiETA Technologies' new centre enables it to bring design and production under one roof.

Customers and partners will be able to visualise and track the processes at all stages of the additive manufacturing (AM): from the initial concept to design; analysis; manufacture; post processing; quality assurance, and component testing.

“Visualising the AM process is critical to engaging with manufacturers”, explains HiETA CEO, Mike Adams.

“The global AM market is forecasted to be worth $3.5 billion by 2017; […] we are determined to play an integral role in driving the UK’s rightful position as world leaders,” he further adds.

With businesses constantly challenging AM providers to deliver industrialisation at the right price and with the right safeguards, HiETA suggests running the machines in house with the build and design team working alongside could put them ahead of the challenge.

“The Technology Centre is a significant investment by HiETA, but pivotal to our business development while presenting a working showcase to the manufacturing industry.”
