The largest machine chamber
measures 250 x 250 x 350 mm.
After taking into account the bolt holes and build plate height, as shown on the left, the maximum build volume is approximately 240 x 240 x 330 mm.
A key benefit of additive manufacturing is light weighting. Therefore, a maximum wall thickness of 50 mm is recommended to reduce mass.
On the other end of the spectrum, the smallest feature we can build is governed by the size of weld pool created by the laser. The table below is a general guide to the minimum dimensions achievable by our laser powder bed fusion technology.
For dimensions less than 50 mm, we can confidently achieve ± 0.15 mm and for dimensions greater than 50 mm, the tolerances are ± 0.25 mm.
HiETA offer a range of production materials, as shown.
Material Datacards are available on request.
This is not an exhaustive list, and HiETA has full capability to develop new materials or alloys for your requirements.
Please enquire for more information on these services.
HiETA offers a full end to end manufacturing value chain to ensure components are fully finished to your specification.
We supply some of our products in the as built condition and also performed sand blast, grit blast, vibro deburr or machining for customers with tighter requirements.
The table below displays the approximate surface finishing obtained on Inconel and aluminium materials in the as built condition.
