Laser metal deposition

LMD is a Directed Energy Deposition (DED) process that functions by precisely stacking weld beads on top of one another, in powder or wire form, when introduced into the laser generated melt pool.

Multi-laser Deposition Head

Meltio’s technology comes packaged in a compact deposition head, host of multiple lasers and capable of processing wire and powder simultaneously.

Safe and Reliable

The bulk of the 3D printing process is built around wire, the safest, cleanest and easiest to work with metal feedstock.

Integration Ready

Turn an existing CNC or robotic platform into an hybrid manufacturing system with no inherent size constraints.

Multi Material

Print dual wire for hard-facing or anti-corrosion applications, or wire and powder to create new alloys on the fly.

Process Stability

The metal 3D printing process is monitored in real time and compensated by process control.

Maintenance Ready

Long service life with excellent access to all components for preventive maintenance.

High Power

Laser power of 1.2kW and optional hot wire system for increased deposition rates.

Extremely Efficient

The wire deposition utilizes 100% of the material and the heat input is kept extremely low.

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. If the desired build material is not available in wire form, powder can be used.

Excellent Mechanical Properties

Meltio’s compact heat affected zone process achieves exceptional mechanics, decreased thermal stress and near isotropic properties, exceeding casting and forging material properties.

Consistent 99.998% densification

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.

Full density metal 3d printing

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.
