Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies (HMT), Moira, Leicestershire, UK, has opened a new subsidiary, Hybrid Advanced Manufacturing (Hybrid AM). Hybrid AM now offers Manufacturing-as-a-Service (MaaS) using HMT’s expertise and equipment.
For over eight years, HMT has been working towards the transitioning of hybrid systems into commercial realities. Despite industry disruption caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19), HMT was able to double the size of its facilities. This expansion houses the new AM division, headed by Peter-Jon Solomon, MSc, CEng. The division hosts capabilities for laser metal deposition as well as polymer & composite extrusion additive, integrated with subtractive, and inspection.
“We understand that many would like access to our technology, but do not yet have enough demand to purchase their own system,” stated Dr Jason Jones, CEO & co-founder. “This new division furthers our mission to enable wider access to hybrid technology. Our integrated approach to digital manufacturing drives untapped value for customer applications not practical with other approaches.”
