Meltio M450 is the world’s first metal 3D printer capable of building fully dense parts from wire and powder in the same machine, by using a patented multi-laser technology. It’s able to automatically use metal wire, metal powder or both simultaneously without changing the nozzle.
Meltio M450 can produce complex metallic components from both wire and powder feedstock. The ability to produce parts from wire makes operation and material handling very clean, as well as ensuring 100% material efficiency. Being able to process powder fills the gap to conventional LMD and brings the ability to mix alloys on the fly.
M450 provides a low-cost entry to metal additive manufacturing. It can use any commercially available metal wires and powders in the market and the cost of both the equipment and the spare parts is substantially lower compared to competing technologies.
Despite its compact outer dimensions Meltio 450 features a significant print envelope of 150x200x450 mm. The printer is clean and suitable for desktop environments, without the typical hassle of common and bulky industrial hardware.
Its sealed atmosphere eliminates oxidation, enabling 3D printing of reactive metals. M450 features not only metal 3D printing of full parts, but also an all-in-one additive manufacturing solution for repairing parts, laser cladding, laser welding (autogenous and with filler), laser cutting, laser texturing and polishing.
The printer features a powerful on-board computer with 17” touchscreen and a feature rich GUI with advanced custom designed software to allow easy model slicing and access to process parameters. The printer can also be controlled via a tablet or computer through a local wireless network or via an Ethernet connection.
