Large-Scale Metal 3D Printing

The Meltio Engine integrates with any robot arm manufacturer and interface in the market.

Large-Scale


No inherent constraints when the working envelope is only limited by the size of the motion system.

Cladding


Provide new capability to any robot arm by turning it into a metal 3D printing system.

Geometry Freedom


Create highly complex parts with infinite degrees of freedom.

Part Repair


Create highly complex parts with machining tolerances in the same process.

Printhead Information

Custom mounting hardware for the deposition head and upper enclosure for electronics and related sensors.

Printhead Size (WxDxH): 202 X 297 X 784 mm
Printhead Weight: 15.5 kg

Key Integration Requirements

Custom mounting hardware for the deposition head and upper enclosure for electronics and related sensors.

Payload of at least 45 – 60 kg ensures that the robot can follow the additive toolpath precisely. Position repeatability of ± 0.06 mm according to ISO 9283.
At least 8 Digital I/O configured according to “Communications Protocols Robot Meltio Engine”. When using OPC DA or Socket as the default communication protocol, Meltio recommends a total of 16 Digital I/O.
The robot and the ositioner must be installed, configured, and calibrated before the Meltio Engine Integration.
Possibility to add safety integration (depending on the integration).
Laser-safe robot cell with a security circuit between the robot controller, the Meltio Engine, and the cell door interlock. The integrator is responsible for the correct installation and operation of the security system.

*A laser safety enclosure and safety interlocks for the robot cell are not included. These additional hardware items are to be sourced by the integrator or end user customer because they will depend on the final application and installation facilities.

Upgrades and Accessories

Dual Wire: This option allows to 3D print two wire materials sequentially with very quick wire switches.
Hot Wire: Programmable power supply that preheats the material to increase the deposition rate.
Laser Alignment System: It allows users to calibrate Meltio’s multi-laser deposition head accurately and effortlessly prior to every print.

Metal 3D Printing Experiences

Miguel Peñaranda

Additive Manufacturing Engineer / K3D


"We opted for the Meltio product due to its optimal blend of high deposition rates and superior quality, perfectly suited for our current project requirements. For us, Meltio embodies the ideal equilibrium, offering both rapid deposition speeds and expansive printing capabilities without compromising on quality or resolution. K3D, a Dutch Service Bureau specializing in printing diverse parts for end-users across various industries, utilizes a Meltio M450 and Meltio Engine Robot Integration in its operations."
