Meltio Engine CNC Integration – Meltio’s metal additive manufacturing technology offers two metal AM solutions, the turn key M450 metal 3D Printer and the scalable Meltio Engine for easy integration with industrial motion hardware such as CNC machines and robotic cells.
Industrial Metal 3D Printer
Turn any machine tool into an hybrid manufacturing system with no inherent size constraints. The Meltio Engine is the ideal CNC complement for near net shape manufacturing, repair and feature addition.
Meltio Engine CNC Integration – Industrial Metal 3D Printer
The most affordable hybrid manufacturing solution, fitting almost any CNC machine in the market. Enable metal 3D printing and machining of complex geometries in a single process step.
Create highly complex parts with machining tolerances in the same process.
Provide new capability to any CNC machine by turning it into an hybrid metal manufacturing system.
Cost-effective component repair, part augmentation and feature addition.
No inherent constraints when the working envelope is only limited by the size of the motion system.
Meltio Engine Specifications

Actuated mounting hardware where the deposition head is stored in a sealed enclosure when not in use and automatically deployed when needed.
Retracted Dimensions (W*D*H):
Unretracted Dimensions (W*D*H):
*The integration will require laser safety windows, door safety interlocks and sheet metal protection for any penetrations in the roof or side walls of the machine. These hardware items are to be sourced by the integrator and depend on the CNC machine of choice.
Programmable power supply that preheats the material to increase the deposition rate.
This option allows to 3D print two wire materials sequentially with very quick wire switches.
External Wire Drum
Draw from an external wire source. Drums from 100kg may be used for convenience.
