Meltio, Linares, Spain, and Bharat Fritz Werner (BFW), Bangalore, India, have announced plans to bring metal Additive Manufacturing and CNC hybrid manufacturing solutions to the Indian market. Under the strategic partnership, BFW will integrate Meltio’s AM technology into its machines, combining additive and subtractive processes in a single system.

Meltio provides metal AM solutions that enable industrial applications with a process built around welding wire, known as wire-based Directed Energy Deposition (DED). BFW is said to be the leading CNC machine tool manufacturer and industry 4.0 solution provider in India. The synergy of the two companies will also provide a sustainable alternative for the aerospace, defence, automotive, and mining industries.

“The world is changing, and this strategic partnership between Meltio’s innovative technology and BFW’s strong position in India (one of the world’s most important markets) will bring forth cutting-edge solutions for the next industrial revolution 4.0.,” stated Ángel Llavero López de Villalta, CEO at Meltio.

Ravi Raghavan, CEO at BFW, added, “We are very impressed with Meltio’s Innovative Additive Technology. Our partnership opens doors for developing an array of industrial applications yielding a competitive advantage to customers. We are very excited about the future as Bharat Fritz Werner and Meltio both share a common vision of providing futuristic solutions to customers.”

Meltio is now at Formnext in Hall 12, E119.
