Meltio, a Spain-based manufacturer of wire-laser metal deposition systems, has reached a milestone in its business: it has now sold over 300 machines globally. The company’s wire-laser metal deposition systems are now in use in over 60 countries by customers in automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, mining, research and education.
The company’s wire-laser metal deposition systems are capable of producing dense metal components as well as repairing existing metal products using a variety of metal wire feedstocks, including stainless steels, titanium, nickel, inconel and more. The metal additive manufacturing technology is user-friendly, cost-efficient and highly versatile. This is because Meltio offers a number of systems for different integration options, including the Meltio M450 3D printer, the Meltio Robot Cell, the Meltio Engine Robot integration and the Meltio CNC Robot integration.
The over 300 systems sold suggest that demand is indeed growing for DED technologies. “This milestone of exceeding 300 systems sold worldwide confirms that the industry is embracing our metal 3D printing solutions for manufacturing and repairing metal parts,” says CEO Ángel Llavero. “It is a recognition of the efforts of the entire Meltio team and a confirmation that we are on the right path of innovation to offer the market new Meltio solutions that respond to their production needs, flexibility and reliability in industrial manufacturing processes.”
The Spanish firm will be showcasing its newest product, the Meltio Robot Cell, at Formnext 2023 this week in Frankfurt, Germany. The new plug-and-play system, which was announced in September, integrates an industrial robotic arm and the company’s recently launched slicing software. Notably, it is equipped with monitoring and advanced safety features which enable it to print dense metal parts in an industrial environment autonomously. You can find the 3D printing system making metal parts, alongside the Meltio M450 3D printer at Booth C101, Hall 12.0.
