Abdelkrim Chehaibou, Managing Director of the Institut de Soudure, and Yannick Loisance, CEO of Multistation signed a partnership agreement on November 22 aimed at the development of metal additive manufacturing applications by laser metal deposition technology.
“We are happy to be able to contribute with the Institut de Soudure to the development of metal additive manufacturing. These new disruptive technologies require strong support that the Institut de Soudre teams will be able to satisfy. The Meltio wire/powder laser process is certainly a direct deposit of material, but above all, a process using the fundamentals of welding,” declared Yannick Loisance, Multistation CEO.
Multistation will provide the Welding Institute with the M450 machine from the manufacturer Meltio, a 3D metal printing machine that uses metal wire and powder, which turns out to be compact, ecological, and economical. The M450 will be accessible by industrial companies, Multistation customers, members of the Institut de Soudure, or by other companies and organizations seeking to deepen their knowledge of DED technologies. “We welcome this agreement which should anchor Meltio’s position on the French market” confirmed Angel Llavero, CEO of Meltio. For Multistation, the exclusive distributor in France of Meltio solutions, and Meltio, this agreement will contribute to their common desire to build an ecosystem in France around DED technology.
“With Meltio’s M450 machine supplied by Multistation, we have a machine that is very complementary to our existing resources in terms of WAAM, wire arc additive manufacturing, which opens the field of possibilities to multiple applications such as the production of spare parts. metal or the development of mobile hybrid machines ”confirmed Cécile Bernardi Lexa, additive manufacturing and laser beam welding manager of the Institut de Soudure Group.
