HiETA Clears the First Hurdle for a New TSB Grant

HiETA is developing a number of products using Additive Manufacturing that have high volume potential, but the Additive Manufacturing industry is still focused on low volume and rapid prototyping. HiETA believe that work needs to be done by machine manufacturers and the up and downstream supply chain to make volume production using Additive Manufacturing a reality.

The Technology Strategy Board (a public body set up to promote and support UK innovation) agrees and has put HiETA’s request for funding support through to the next stage of a competition for funds to investigate a range of topics in the AM area. We now have a few weeks to prepare a more detailed submission that we hope will be successful and enable us to progress this important piece of work.
