The Meltio M450 is a state of the art DED (directed energy deposition) metal 3D printer that can quickly and easily print low cost parts with a wide variety of materials.   With dual wire and dual powder feeders it opens up unlimited research opportunities for new materials and part designs.   This system can be used to develop printing capability that can be transferred to other stand-alone and expanded Meltio systems such as the Meltio Engine.  Contact Atami staff if you have parts building or research interests.

Applications

  • Build metal parts from both wire and powder.
  • A wide variety of parts shapes, from different materials, with high density.
