Meltio Engine CNC integration

Transform any machine tool into a hybrid manufacturing system without inherent size constraints. The Meltio Engine is the ideal CNC complement for manufacturing, repairing and adding near net shape functionality.

Data sheet
Integration of hybrid production
The most cost-effective hybrid manufacturing solution, suitable for almost all CNC machines on the market. Enable metal 3D printing and machining of complex geometries in a single process step.

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

Bring new functionality to any CNC machine by turning it into a hybrid metal manufacturing system.

Repair of parts
Cost-effective component repair, parts augmentation, and feature addition.

Geometry Freedom
No intrinsic constraints when the work area is limited only by the size of the motion system.

CNC requirements

The minimum requirements for correct integration of the Meltio Engine with a CNC machine are:

  • Spindle motors can handle the additional weight
  • The distribution mechanism can be mounted without collisions
  • Eight unused M-code controlled relays
  • Possibility of adding a NO relay to the feed hold
  • Ability to add resume/start feed buttons
  • Laser safety windows can be fitted
  • The system can lock all doors and windows


Upgrades and accessories

Hot wire
Programmable feeder that preheats the material to increase deposition speed.
Double thread
This option allows you to 3D print two wire materials in sequence with very quick wire changes.
Sturdy table with stainless steel and aluminum wheels. Contains drawers for tools and materials.
Laser calibration system
It allows users to calibrate Meltio's multi-laser deposition head accurately and effortlessly before every print.
