Meltio Engine Robot Integration

Transform a robotic arm into a metal 3D printing system without inherent size constraints. Meltio Engine Robot Integration is the perfect platform for large, complex 3D printing, repairing, coating and adding functionality.

Thanks to our commercial agreement with Wire Trading SAS, official distributor of KUKA Robot , we are able to offer you a complete solution designed according to your production needs.

Data sheet


Integration of metal robotic 3D printing
The most cost-effective large-scale metal 3D printing solution, the Meltio Engine integrates with any robotic arm and interface manufacturer on the market.

High complexity
Create highly complex parts with infinite degrees of freedom.

Provide new functionality to any robotic arm by transforming it into a metal 3D printing system.

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

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