High metallurgical quality
Meltio's wire-laser metal deposition process (W-LMD) uses multiple laser beams to melt and deposit metal wire coaxially onto a build platform, layer by layer, to create the desired part. Compared with other Directed Energy Deposition processes, W-LMD delivers an extremely compact heat affected zone which results in a better metallurgical microstructure and near isotropic properties.
The lower heat input and stable process also result in high dimensional accuracy and smooth surface finish, with typically only 1.5mm over thickness.
Easy to implement
Wire is easier to handle and store than other feedstock materials such as powders. Meltio printers can be installed in any manufacturing environment - you will not need to build dedicated facilities.
Training requirements are minimal. Automated toolpath generation and material print profiles supplied by Meltio make for a plug and play experience, even without previous knowledge of metal printing.
Wire-laser metal deposition achieves top performance while maintaining low running costs. Wire feedstock is a welding commodity. In some alloys the price difference with powder is up to an order of magnitude.
W-LMD also generates less waste than powder 3D printing processes, further reducing costs and improving ROI.
