Meltio Engine Robot Integration

One Off Robotics Cell

The One Off Robotics Cell is a robotic metal additive system powered by Meltio’s Wire Laser Metal Deposition (W-LMD) technology. The system produces cost-effective, finely printed metal parts for applications in industries including automotive, aerospace, mining, oil and gas, and many others.

With an impressive deposition rate of up to 1 kg an hour, this system excels at creating clean parts that are fully dense and mechanically equivalent or superior to those created from traditional means.
