Compositadour, Bayonne, France, a manufacturing company specialising in composites, robotics and Additive Manufacturing, has added a Directed Energy Deposition (DED) wire-laser build head from Meltio, Linares, Spain, to its Addimadour Additive Manufacturing platform in order to expand its use range.

Addimadour was launched in 2017 in order to support companies in the development of their metal Additive Manufacturing projects. The addition of Meltio’s DED build head enables the AM platform to produce both small and large parts with greater working precision. The company states that it is the first French structure to install this DED head on a six-axis robot arm.

In the future, the partnership between French Additive Manufacturing machine distributor Multistation, Compositadour and Meltio is anticipated to allow the development of training on the use of the Addimadour. It is also expected to be used for training on several processes.
