” The SAMM Tech platform with Meltio components offers an impressive, high performing solution for in-the-field parts manufacturing,” said Jeremy Heerdink, Vice President of Business Development. “Our goal in expanding our sales partnership of Meltio products is to provide solutions facilitating efficient and accurate additive manufacturing capabilities in the most remote and harshest environments around the world.”
SAMM Tech is a newly released patented additive manufacturing system that is built and operates inside a shipping container. Designed to be transportable and deployable to any location in the world, SAMM Tech supports warfighters and industrial operators by advancing in the-field production of large-format metal parts for equipment repairs onsite and on demand.
The Meltio system has been an integral component since the inception of the SAMM Tech platform and was selected to be included in the standard offering due to its performance capabilities, product quality, and integration and automation functionality. The Meltio system features a directed energy deposition (DED) process that functions by precisely stacking layers of weld beads when introduced into the laser-generated melt pool.
The bulk of the 3D printing process is built around wire, the safest, cleanest, and easiest to work with metal feedstock. In addition, users have the option to print dual wire for hard-facing or anti-corrosion applications. With the ability to 3D print parts in stainless steel, mild steel, carbon steel, titanium alloys, and nickel alloys, SAMM Tech with Meltio system is an ideal solution for onsite manufacturing for defense, aerospace, and energy markets.
