- The New German integrator will develop Meltio wire-laser metal 3D printing solutions for industries
Meltio, a manufacturer of disruptive laser metal deposition technology, announced today that FIT AG, a German industrial Additive Manufacturing integrator, has been appointed as Meltio Service Bureau and a key contributor to application development in Germany and DACH.
FIT AG aims to make metal 3D printing services accessible and affordable to a wide range of industries. Their business model allows for widespread adoption of various additive manufacturing technologies. After verifying the numerous benefits of Meltio’s cutting-edge wire laser metal deposition (LMD), FIT AG decided to add this innovative technology to its portfolio.

By integrating the Meltio Engine into a robotic arm, FIT AG will play an important role in making this technology available throughout the DACH region. They will also contribute to the enhancement and advancement of said technology. Furthermore, FIT AG will meet the demand for Meltio parts in a variety of industrial applications.
Meltio’s cutting-edge multi-metal 3D printing technology precisely stacks weld beads on top of one another when placed in a laser-generated meltpool. The process employs commodity welding wire, the cleanest, safest, and most affordable metal feedstock on the market. The Meltio Engine seamlessly integrates with both robotic and CNC equipment, introducing new metal additive manufacturing capabilities to a wide range of industries and applications.
“We are thrilled to be working with FIT AG and KnowHow Wilhelms, as this collaboration between us serves as a great indicator of how Meltio’s partner ecosystem is evolving. Together we will be able to cater to the ever-growing interest in Meltio’s technology and its applications. As well as by leveraging FIT’s knowledge, we will be able to further develop the adoption of Meltio unique wire-laser metal additive manufacturing for different industries.”– Moisés Moza Sanchez, Sales manager in DACH region at Meltio
Meltio’s Laser DED technology is the perfect missing link between Selective Laser Melting and Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM). It steps in to fill the performance gap when metal parts from WAAM are too large and laser melting parts are too expensive. An important advantage is that the FIT experts can benefit from WAAM’s special expertise in multiaxial tool path programming, which they have developed over the years. A previous evaluation of a test system provided by Knowhow Wilhelm was extremely positive.
Carl Fruth, founder and CEO of FIT AG, announces, “The Laser DED wire technology by Meltio is what appears to be an ideal enhancement of our inventory of AM technologies. We see fantastic opportunities here to develop ground-breaking new applications all along with our customers.”
