Wire-Laser

Metal Deposition

Wire Laser Metal Deposition is a Directed Energy Deposition (DED) process that functions by precisely stacking weld beads on top of one another in wire form when introduced into the laser generated melt pool.

Wire-Laser Metal 3D Printing

It comes packaged in a compact deposition head, a host of multiple lasers, and capable of processing single and dual wire simultaneously.

Safe Reliable

The bulk of the 3D printing process is built around wire, the safest, cleanest, and easiest to work with metal feedstock.

Integration Ready

Turn an existing CNC or robotic platform into a hybrid manufacturing system with no inherent size constraints.

Multi-Material System

Print dual wire for hard-facing or anti-corrosion applications, or wire and dual-wire to create new alloys on the fly.

Accessible

The only metal 3D printing process able to deliver fully dense and affordable metal parts within a few hours.

Multi-Laser Deposition Head

It comes packaged in a compact deposition head, a host of multiple lasers, and capable of processing single and dual wire simultaneously.

Integrated Wire Feed/s

Critical for high process reliability and unique to Meltio. Short distance from feeder to process is necessary for maximum wire feeding precision.

Shield Gas Ring

The head has prevents oxidation through a large nozzle ring with very good gas distribution just a few millimeters from the melt pool.

Easy to Service

All wear parts like the wire nozzle and protective optic assembly are very easy and low-cost to replace.

Coaxial Wire Feed

Can print geometries in any direction. Wire comes through the center of the melt pool thanks to the distributed laser system.

Distributed Laser System

A total of 1,2 kW of laser power distributed across six 200 W lasers. It provides an extremely long service life, low optical densities.

Integrated Process Control

Sensors monitor the laser fibers and the deposition process. The system will regulate automatically if an irregularity is detected, or put itself on hold in critical conditions.

Meltio M450

Turn-key Metal 3D Printer

Designed for industry without the need for industrial infrastructure; affordable, reliable, safe, and easy to use metal 3D printer. Ideal for small to medium size part fabrication, and multi-metal 3D printing research.

The Meltio M450 allows users to produce metal parts of very high density
in a single-step process on a very compact footprint.

Safe

Suitable for any environment thanks to a process built around wire, a sealed chamber and a built-in 3 stage filter.

Easy-to-use

Automatic toolpath generation and material print profiles supplied by Meltio make for a plug and play experience.

Reliable

The metal 3D printing process is monitored in real time and compensated if required by process control.

Affordable

The low capital and running costs of the Meltio M450 make metal 3D printing of conventional parts possible.
