Meltio to debut ‘4D manufacturing’ technology at Formnext 2019

November 15, 2019

Metal Additive Manufacturing company Meltio, based in Linares, Spain, and Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, will debut its patented new technology at Formnext 2019, Frankfurt, Germany, November 19–22. Referred to as a ‘4D manufacturing’ with ‘3E Metal Deposition’ technology, the company will offer a new deposition head capable of building fully-dense parts from wire and powder simultaneously, without the need for nozzle changes.

While full details of the system have not yet been released, it is said to have a small footprint, use a multi-laser deposition head with a high power capacity, and to be 50% less expensive than current market systems, while using materials up to ten times cheaper than typically used in metal AM. According to Meltio, it also enables the manufacture of parts from different materials in the same machine without contamination.

Its compact deposition head is said to measure 150 mm (width and dimension) x 265 mm. It can be used for applications including the manufacturing of metal parts, part repairs, laser cladding, welding, texturing and more. It is said to offer easy integration with CNC systems, robots and gantry systems, as well as with hybrid manufacturing systems with AM capabilities.
