We work together with

Machining and Additive Manufacturing Platform

It fits almost any CNC machine. Enables metal 3D printing and machining of complex geometries in a single process step.

Hybrid Manufacturing

Create highly complex parts with machining tolerances in the same process.

Part Repair

Cost-effective component repair, part augmentation, and feature addition. 

Retrofitting

Provide new capability to any CNC machine by turning it into an hybrid metal manufacturing system.

Geometry Freedom

No inherent constraints when the working envelope is only limited by the size of the motion system.

Metal 3D Printing Experiences

Francesc Martínez

R&D Integrations Director / Sivó

” If we compare with other makers of laser, with Meltio we’ve had the clearer deposition in thousands of parts, and that is nice to see. We can also make some parts that are impossible to make without Meltio’s technology. 

We can produce one part with one configuration, then another one with a total different one. Without Meltio’s technology, we wouldn’t be able to do it because the costs would be too high. “

Sivó is a Spanish company specialized in the repair of glass molds using a Meltio Engine CNC Integration.
