Meltio M450

Meltio M450​

Highly compact Metal 3D Printer for the production of small to medium sized parts using our LMD-WP Process.

Affordable

Low Cost of Acquisition:
The M450 is positioned as one of the lowest cost metal 3D Printers of any type, especially when compared to other Direct Metal 3D-Printing processes. 

 

Low Material Cost:
As the M450 primarily produces parts from the same type of wire feedstock also used by commercial welding machines, a large range of high quality materials is available globally at very low costs starting below 10USD per Kg.

High Deposition rates:
Thanks to its high laser power of up to 1.2kW and optional hotwire system, the M450 produces parts at significantly higher rates than PBF machines. Compared to material extrusion / Jetting Processes our Printer does not require time intensive debindering and sintering steps.

Multi Material:
The M450 can produce parts made of more than one material. In fact it offers different ways of printing multimaterial parts, using two different wire materials, wire and powder materials or two powder materials.

Dual Wire: 
Using two material feeders integrated in the deposition head the machine can switch between the two discrete materials quickly mid process. This way complex and large dual material structures can be made.

Wire and Powder:
The machine can process both wire and powder feedstock, though one or more optional powder feeder is needed for powder printing. This allows for on the fly alloying of different materials and unique material combinations using wire and powder feedstock at the same time. 
Note: Due to powder contamination, the bulk of large parts should always be printed from wire feedstock. 

Full Density:
Parts printed with our LMD-WP process achive very high densities comparable to forgings. Contact us for Material testing data.

Large Print Envelope:
Despite its compact form factor the M450 offers a reasonable Print envelope suitable for most medium sized components.
