FIT AG, the German industrial additive manufacturing integrator, is now the first official service bureau and a key contributor to Meltio’s application development in Germany and the DACH region – after verifying the advantages of Meltio’s state-of-the-art wire laser metal deposition (LMD) and incorporating it into its portfolio. FIT AG will assist in the improvement and advancement of the Meltio Engine and will support the demand for Meltio parts for a wide range of applications for industrial sectors.

Meltio’s cutting-edge multi-metal 3D printing technology precisely stacks weld beads on top of one another when introduced into a laser-generated meltpool. The process uses commodity welding wire – some of the cleanest, safest, and lowest-cost metal feedstock on the market. The Meltio Engine integrates with both robotic as well as CNC equipment – bringing new metal additive manufacturing capabilities to a wide range of industries and applications.

“We are thrilled to be working with FIT AG and KnowHow Wilhelms, as this collaboration between us serves as a great indicator of how Meltio’s partner ecosystem is evolving. Together we will be able to cater to the ever-growing interest in Meltio’s technology and its applications. As well as by leveraging FIT’s knowledge, we will be able to further develop the adoption of Meltio’s unique wire-laser metal additive manufacturing for different industries,” said Moisés Moza Sanchez, Sales Manager for the DACH region at Meltio.

For FIT, Meltio’s Laser DED technology is the missing link between Selective Laser Melting and Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) – filling the performance gap whenever metal parts from WAAM are too chunky and laser melting parts too costly. FIT experts can also profit from their know-how in multiaxial tool path programming from WAAM, which they have pushed forward over the last years.

“The Laser DED wire technology by Meltio is what appears to be an ideal enhancement of our inventory of AM technologies. We see fantastic opportunities here to develop ground-breaking new applications all along with our customers,” said Carl Fruth, Founder and CEO of FIT AG.
