Meltio, a disruptive laser metal deposition technology manufacturer, announced that it has partnered with HDC to boost its growth in the South Korean AM market. HDC will be Meltio’s official sales partner and will play a key role in distribution and support of the Meltio metal 3D printing solutions in the region.

South Korean AM Market
South Korea was one of the early adopters of 3D printing, which was then primarily used for rapid prototyping. However, 3D printing applications in South Korea have recently expanded beyond rapid prototyping and are now being used for direct manufacturing of end-use products, particularly in the healthcare and dental industries.
According to a research report, the South Korean AM market is expected to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2028, up from around USD 500 million currently.
With the partnership, HDC will concentrate on creating a supportive ecosystem for Meltio’s technology in South Korean territory, as well as partnering and driving business opportunities.

The technology in how Meltio produces metal parts is disruptive, fast, cheap, safe, and easy to use.
