Manufacturing & Prototyping
Race to Innovate: Exchanging Metal 3D Printing Solutions With HiETA
Discover how technology from Renishaw is helping HiETA Technologies move metal additive manufacturing (AM) from prototype into commercial production of its specialist range of heat exchangers.
The challenge was to firstly validate that metal AM could produce sufficiently thin walls and then to produce working parts. AM parameter sets were developed with Renishaw to enable production of leak-free thin walls then a full-size working unit, the HiETA HiEND recuperator, was manufactured on a Renishaw metal AM system to be combined with a Delta Motorsport micro turbine for a range-extended electric car.
