Meltio forms AM software partner ecosystem

December 19, 2022

Meltio, Linares, Spain, has announced its new Meltio Engine Software Partners ecosystem, which aims to ensure a set of reliable software solutions to allow customers to identify the best software tool for their needs. Comprised of some of they key Additive Manufacturing software players, the ecosystem is intended to complement Meltio Horizon and help the company to provide an end-to-end AM software solution.

The twelve companies that form the ecosystem, and their respective softwares, are:

  • SKM DCAM, by SKM Informatik
  • AdaOne, by Adaxis
  • AiSync, by AiBuild
  • Esprit, by Hexagon
  • Fusion 360, by Autodesk
  • Aplus+Mastercam, by Camufacturing and Mastercam
  • Hypermill, by OpenMind
  • SiemensNX, by Siemens
  • Hy5CAM, by 1ATechnologies
  • RobotStudio 3D Printing PowerPack, by ABB, and SprutCAM X, by SprutCam

“For a year, we have been working with all of them sharing the needs that we understood most suitable for our customers, going as far as sharing as well as in some cases sharing the mathematical algorithms needed for the functionalities we required,” stated Ángel Llavero, CEO of Meltio. “The result of this collaboration between our engineers and the teams of these companies has now resulted in offering this software platform to the market.”

“With this alliance, Meltio sends the message to all our customers of the Meltio Engine CNC and Robot Integration that the software that appears is tested and certified for the handling and proper use of Meltio’s technology,” Llavero added. “With the creation of this new agreement with major software development companies, we continue our strategic goal of facilitating and democratising metal Additive Manufacturing.”

Meltio provides an open platform for hardware (any robot or CNC), as well as for software that allows the use of any software to manufacture metal parts and meet the growing demand of industrial applications in the market for hybrid and robotic AM.

The company has created a process to technically validate each solution, avoiding extra work between the final customer and software provider – for example, by defining post-processors to ensure that the specific software can get the most out of the Meltio Engine.

Meltio’s engineers have also studied the technical requirements for developing slicing strategies for the majority of the parts that the industry requires. This new software ecosystem offers tools to address a variety of parts and industries through advanced slicing features such as: fixed tool orientation, revolved surfaces, features on non-planar surfaces, simple surface coating, radial cladding, 360 features, variable layer deposition, controlled area repair and non-controlled area repair.
