Ziknes works with Meltio to create the Z-Metallic One robotic additive manufacturing machine

Meltio, a producer of steel laser deposition expertise, and Ziknes, a expertise startup combining robotics and additive manufacturing, have joined forces to create Z-Metallic One, a plug and play robotic machine, that the businesses say permits for the creating of 3D elements in a easy, sustainable and environment friendly means.

Ziknes has labored with Meltio since 2021 to plot a system prepared to be used quick by finish prospects, and provides a whole {hardware} and software program resolution for steel 3D printing. The Z-Metallic One features a self-supporting construction with a robotic, positioner, and Meltio’s multi-laser laser head.

The combination is made potential by the Meltio Engine, a hybrid manufacturing module that mixes 3D printing with CNC machining centres or robotic arms. Ziknes selected this expertise to assist its makes an attempt to make the commercial sector extra sustainable by way of lowered waste, emissions and power use.

Z-Metallic One was created as an all-in-one resolution that brings collectively its robotic printing software program, a positioning desk, a laser printing system, course of automation and a validated self-supporting construction that makes the machine simpler to move. The system has the potential to print giant elements in supplies equivalent to titanium, copper, aluminium, metal and inconel. In keeping with the producers, the Meltio head additionally produces no waste.

The method is made versatile by way of a robotic that drives the multi-laser head by way of its 6 axes. The positioner options two rotation and turning axes, that means that it’s not essential to create helps. The machines are validated in-house by Ziknes, earlier than being despatched out with a handbook to the client’s premises, that means that he solely requirement is for the client to finish a fundamental coaching course.

Earlier this 12 months, Meltio introduced K3D as its first official service bureau accomplice and a key contributor to its utility growth efforts inside Europe.
