CAUDETE and LINARES, Spain, Sep 28, 2021 – Meltio , manufacturer of disruptive laser metal deposition technology, announces that Sivó , an industrial machining workshop, becomes the first official integrator of the Meltio Engine CNC integration in Spain and Portugal, with the support of Sicnova, commercial partner Meltio official in the Iberian Peninsula.
Sivó plans to enjoy the benefits of Meltio’s hybrid manufacturing. On the one hand, they will use the machine to improve their glass bottle mold repair process. On the other hand, as part of the Sicnova sales ecosystem, they will be the first official integrators of Meltio Engine for CNC equipment in Spain and Portugal. They are looking to install Meltio’s unique hybrid solution for those who want to upgrade their manufacturing processes.
Meltio’s state-of-the-art multi-metal 3D printing technology precisely stacks the weld beads on top of each other when fed into a laser-generated fusion bed. The process uses basic solder wire, the cleanest, safest and lowest cost metallic raw material on the market. The Meltio Engine integrates seamlessly into existing CNC machines and robots, bringing new capabilities to a wide range of industries and applications. CNC integration maximizes manufacturing potential by creating highly complex large parts with single-pass machining tolerances. This provides countless advantages to machine shops, such as Sivó.
“ We are delighted to work with Sivó and Sicnova, as the collaboration between the sales and integration partners within the Meltio ecosystem is essential to accelerate the adoption of technology in a territory. With Sivó’s experience, we can now offer a comprehensive solution to customers who require hybrid manufacturing capacity in Spain and Portugal . – Gerard García, director of marketing and sales at Meltio.
Sivó has extensive experience in repairing and adjusting molds for large glass bottles and valves, as well as models and prototypes. In recent years, the company’s machining department has gained special relevance, with jobs of great technical complexity. So they decided to install the CNC Meltio Engine integration on their Haas UMC-1000SS machine, which was ready in a week.
“Meltio’s technology allows us to finish a project started in 2016. Its objective is to improve the process and automate the repair of glass bottle molds. Likewise, this technology breaks boundaries allowing the machine creation of impossible parts starting from raw material. This will allow us to expand the market for our products and improve our company at a technological level ”. – José Sivó Romero, director of additive production at Sivó.
