Meltio, provider of wire-laser metal deposition additive manufacturing technology (DED), has advanced its metal 3D printing solutions. The Spanish multinational now offers Meltio Space software.
Meltio Space is a toolpath generator software for the Meltio Engine Robot Integration with an easy-to-use interface for planar, non-planar, and variable extrusion toolpaths, the company says. It also includes 2-axis workpiece positioner interpolation, kinematics simulation, collisions check, and cell configuration.
This new slicer is an addition to the Meltio product lineup that incorporates advanced robotic manipulation capabilities.
This toolpath generator software is specifically developed for an accelerated adoption of Meltio technology and is intended to advance the field of robotic additive manufacturing, the company says. With its intuitive design, users can quickly adapt to the benefits of robotic additive manufacturing without requiring expertise in robotics or programming.
With its integration of 6-axis robotic manipulator and 2-axis workpiece positioners, it opens up new possibilities for metal 3D printing. The coordination, multi-axis toolpath generation, and enhanced design freedom provided by Meltio Space enable users to create intricate, customized and detailed metal parts.
It is a new generation software designed for additive manufacturing for the Meltio Engine integrated into a robotic arm integration.
Prior to the launch of Meltio Space, the company had signed an agreement with 12 major software companies with which its technology is compatible and open. But, now the company facilitates the use or adoption of its wire-laser technology for industrial customers who do not have specific expertise in robotics and additive manufacturing, and all these capabilities are integrated in the new Meltio Space.
