HiETA have developed a unique approach to the industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing with its partners along the SLM supply chain through its ambitious goals to reach volume markets in stationary power and automotive applications of Selective Laser Melting (SLM). As part of the HIETA offering, we are able to take a customer through the processes of assessing not only the technical-fit, but also the commercial fit.

This assessment is based on our understanding of future machine platforms. HiETA can use its insight and knowledge of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology maturity, productivity and costing, machine vendor roadmaps, powder supplier strategies and post processing automation to develop a strategy for adoption and industrialisation.

This collective understanding is deployed to exploit the opportunity offered by SLM whilst managing the commercial and technical risk for the customer.
