Meltio, Linares, Spain, reports it is launching its own range of metal wire-based materials for Additive Manufacturing. The company states that it will also maintain the open materials platform options and its wire-based Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) technology, a form of Directed Energy Deposition (DED), remains compatible with third-party commodity welding wire.

The Meltio Materials range consists of materials that are reported to be extensively tested under controlled conditions with validated part properties and out-of-the-box optimised build parameters. The first batch that is planned to be launched this year is a welding wire format that includes stainless steel 316L, stainless steel 308L, mild steel ER70S, titanium 64 and nickel 718.

Currently, Meltio’s LMD process is compatible with most stainless steels, mild steels, tool steels, titanium alloys, and nickel alloys. In addition, invar, cobalt-chrome alloys, and precious metals like gold have been said to have shown great results in customer-led projects. Materials like copper, aluminium and refractories are still under development.

By offering the new Meltio Materials range as well as maintaining an open materials platform, Meltio explains that its users will be able to benefit from both.
