Meltio recommends printing the bulk of the parts with metallic wire – the cleanest, safest and lowest cost metal feedstock in the market. If the desired build material is not available in wire form, powder can be used.
The bulk of the 3D printing process is built around wire, the safest, cleanest and easiest to work with metal feedstock.
Combine different metal materials in a single part. The wire switching process is quick, automatic and clean.
Wire and Powder
Create new alloys on the fly, test functional gradients and research metal matrix composites (MMC).
Open Materials Platform
Fully supported: 316L (EN 1.4404), 308L (EN1.4316) and 304L (EN 1.4307)
Meltio’s WP-LMD produces fully dense parts with superior microstructure. Exceeding the casting and forging properties, and in certain cases, matching up to wrought material properties.
From 0.3 to 1.2mm layer heights
Meltio’s process allow for an exceptional balance between print speed and surface roughness. Under some conditions, Meltio’s surface roughness using wire can outperform those produced with powder based processes.
Post-process or use as printed
For many applications printed in high-resolution little to no post treatment is necessary. Near net shapes can be post-processed using heat, bead blasting, polishing, brushing or machining.
