HiETA Announces First Successful AM TSB Project

We are delighted to be able to announce the first of HiETA’s successful Technology Strategy Board TSB project.

The High Efficiency END-to-End (HiEND) project addresses the ability of AM to operate as an effective manufacturing route for mid to mass market by proving a viable business/manufacturing model for producing 50,000 units p.a. for our target product within 3-5 year.

Once completed we expect to be able to redefine the boundaries of AM capability and the component features that will make it an attractive process. Successful proof is not only that the number of units can be produced but includes achieving production at a competitive cost, quality and with an acceptable performance envelop.
