Meltio, Linares, Spain, has entered a partnership with the UK-based CREATE Education Project, a specialist provider of Additive Manufacturing equipment for education, who will play a key role in the distribution and support of Meltio’s metal AM machines in the UK education market.
The CREATE Education Project states that it is committed to supporting educators, research, community outreach programmes, and educational institutions to easily embed AM and technologies in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) education, allowing educators to equip and empower student innovation and support the development of young people’s skills for future careers.
Gerard García Torrents, Head of Sales and Marketing at Meltio commented, “It is truly an honour to be able to work with an organisation such as The CREATE Education Project to diffuse Meltio’s pioneering metal 3D printing technology in the UK. I believe that our wire LMD technology provides a perfect platform for education, research and experiment safely and cost-effectively to accelerate the development of industrial applications.”
The CREATE Education Project will reportedly focus on building a supportive research-driven ecosystem for Meltio’s AM technology with the UK’s leading education and research establishments in the UK territory partnering and driving and developing business new opportunities alongside technology centres, tooling machine companies, robotic integrators, academia, and industry.
Paul Croft, founder and Director of The CREATE Education Project stated, “We are delighted to be leading the way by becoming the first education and research-focused business to partner with Meltio in the UK. Being able to bring this pioneering technology to our customers, and support them to develop research and innovation which will impact on the future of industry is truly exciting for us as a business.”
On February 4, 2022, at 4pm GMT, The CREATE Education Project will be hosting a free webinar to explore the Meltio technology in its three deployment forms with testimony from some of the UK’s leading education institutions on how Meltio is being used in their research.
