- Build Volume: 36” x 12” x 12”
- Overall Dimensions: 120” x 132” x 132”
- Typical Power in Operation: 10-20A
- Build Material: Solid Metal Bar
- Material Range: Wide Variety of Metals
- Operation: Open Atmosphere
Unlike traditional processes, MELD is solid-state and yields fully-dense products with near-wrought properties, reduces distortion, and saves time and expense as compared to processes requiring secondary steps to achieve full density or improved properties. With high deposition rates, large parts can be fabricated rapidly for evaluation of new materials and new geometries.
MELD increases capability by allowing manufacture of functionally-graded multi-material parts or addition of material to non-weldable parts.
Machines can be customized to meet your size and geometry requirements.
From prototypes to manufacturing production, we can build parts for you.
Contact us today to see if your parts are possible to repair with MELD.
If you are just beginning to explore the MELD process, we can support you by conducting proof of concept projects to demonstrate feasibility and gather business case data. These generally include sample part delivery, material characterization.
If you are optimizing the process for a material or redesigning a part to leverage the advantages of additive manufacturing, we can support you with consulting. Our consulting services with respect to MELD technology cover applications across additive manufacturing, repairing, coating, joining, material selection, and machine design.
