The B8 model MELD machine offers extreme material flexibility, with freedom of choice for acquisition of materials. Unlike traditional processes, MELD is solid-state and yields fully dense products with near wrought properties, reduces distortion, and saves time and expense as compared to processes requiring secondary steps to achieve full density or improved properties. With high deposition rates, large parts can be fabricated rapidly for evaluation of new materials and new geometries. MELD uses solid bar without waste, and raw material costs are minimal as compared to powder and wire-based processes. MELD increases capability by allowing manufacture of functionally-graded multi-material parts or addition of material to non-weldable parts.
