Meltio, headquartered in Linares, Spain, has announced that FIT AG, based in Lupburg, Germany, has become its first official service bureau, and a key contributor to its application development, in the Germany/Austria/Switzerland (DACH) region.

FIT AG provides Additive Manufacturing services to a wide variety of industries and, after verifying Meltio’s wire laser metal deposition (LMD) process, a form of Directed Energy Deposition (DED), has incorporated the technology into its portfolio.

Carl Fruth, founder and CEO of FIT AG, announced, “The laser DED wire technology by Meltio is what appears to be an ideal enhancement of our inventory of AM technologies. We see fantastic opportunities here to develop ground-breaking new applications all along with our customers.”

The Meltio Engine integrates with both robotic as well as CNC equipment, bringing metal additive manufacturing capabilities to a wide range of industries and applications. The process uses commodity welding wire, being a clean, safe and relatively lowest-cost metal feedstock. By adding the Meltio Engine into a robotic arm at its facility, FIT AG hopes to play a key role in making this technology more accessible across the DACH region.

“We are thrilled to be working with FIT AG and KnowHow Wilhelms [Meltio’s first official sales partner for Germany] as this collaboration between us serves as a great indicator of how Meltio’s partner ecosystem is evolving. Together we will be able to cater to the ever-growing interest in Meltio’s technology and its applications. As well as by leveraging FIT’s knowledge, we will be able to further develop the adoption of Meltio unique wire-laser metal Additive Manufacturing for different industries,” shared Moisés Moza Sanchez, Sales Manager in DACH region at Meltio.
