Hybrid Manufacturing Integration
The most affordable hybrid manufacturing solution, fitting almost any CNC machine in the market. Enable metal 3D printing and machining of complex geometries in a single process step.
Create highly complex parts with machining tolerances in the same process.
Provide new capability to any CNC machine by turning it into an hybrid metal manufacturing system.
Cost-effective component repair, part augmentation and feature addition.
No inherent constraints when the working envelope is only limited by the size of the motion system.
Meltio Engine Specifications
Print Envelope (XxYxZ):
inherent to motion system
multiple 200 W Direct Diode Lasers
closed-loop, laser and wire modulation
208/230 V Single Phase or 400 V Three Phase
2-5 kW peak depending on selected options
from one K300 spool up to two external wire drums
0.8-1.2 mm wire diamater
water-cooled chiller included
Actuated mounting hardware where the deposition head is stored in a sealed enclosure when not in use and automatically deployed when needed.
Retracted Dimensions (W*D*H):
Unretracted Dimensions (W*D*H):
Minimum requirements for a successful integration of the Meltio Engine with a CNC machine are:
- Spindle motors can handle the additional weight
- Deployment mechanism can be mounted without collitions
- Eight unused M-code controlled relays
- Ability to add a NO relays to the feed hold
- Ability to add feed resume/start buttons
- Laser safety windows can be mounted
- System can lock all doors and windows
*The integration will require laser safety windows, door safety interlocks and sheet metal protection for any penetrations in the roof or side walls of the machine. These hardware items are to be sourced by the integrator and depend on the CNC machine of choice.
Open Materials Platform
Meltio recommends printing the bulk of the parts with metallic wire – the cleanest, safest and lowest cost metal feedstock in the market.
Excellent strength and corrosion resistance.
Cheap and ductile, with unparalleled machinability and weldability.
High impact strength, retain hardness at high temperatures.
High strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistance.
High versatility, outstanding heat and corrosion resistance.
Upgrades and Accessories
This option allows to 3D print two wire materials sequentially with very quick wire switches.
Laser Calibration System
It allows users to calibrate Meltio’s multi-laser deposition head accurately and effortlessly prior to every print.
