HiETA Technologies Limited is a product design, development, and production company exploiting the new technology of Additive Manufacturing (AM). Using Selective Laser Melting, we can ‘grow’ components from layers of very fine powders. The very high levels of 3D Design freedom provided by the approach allow HiETA to deploy complex geometries, including lattices, and to integrate multiple components into single designs. This allows us to create more compact and efficient components than conventional manufacturing techniques.
Based in Bristol and Bath Science Park, HiETA is pioneering the use of high-performance metals, polymers, and composite materials. There, in our Technology Centre, our team of highly experienced and qualified engineers design, test, prototype and manufacture innovative high-performance components. Our design for thermal management and weight reductions aim to meet the increasing demand for the smaller, lighter and more efficient engines and energy systems required for the aerospace, defence, automotive and clean energy sectors.
Our team specialises in additive manufacturing. We can provide design, manufacture and support services across the whole value chain from conceptual design and materials science through to the application of the technology and manufacture. The team provides modelling expertise using CFD, FEA, thermal and performance evaluation, testing and quality assurance. We can then manage manufacture and production through the full supply chain in our high-tech Technology Centre.
