Ministrial Visit by Jesse Norman MP – A chance to Show Off Our Technology Centre and Additive Manufacturing Capabilities

HiETA Technologies were visited on the 27th October 2016 by Jesse Norman, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for BEIS. Our Strategy & Programme Lead, Dr. Ben Farmer gave Jesse Norman a tour of the new HiETA Technology Centre, giving him a brief insight into the Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing in metal) process. Here, he was able to see one of our Renishaw AM250’s in action and meet some of our staff and learn about what some of their roles entail. Within his tour, he was also shown the Robot Bike Co R160, a collaboration between HiETA Technologies, Robot Bike Co., Altair Engineering and Renishaw to realise a fully customisable Enduro mountain bike. 

Jesse Norman had been visiting the Bristol & Bath Science Park ahead of a visit he made to Airbus. He was also given a tour around our neighbours, CFMS where he was shown their HPC (High Performance Computer).
