MELD is a revolutionary solid-state technology for additive manufacturing of metal and metal matrix composites. Aeroprobe offers full-scale MELD machines, contract manufacturing of components, and associated products and services. 

MELD machines produce near-net shape components in a wide range of materials. One MELD machine allows manufacture of fully-built parts, coating existing structures, performing repairs, and joining similar and dissimilar materials using a wide array of metals in solid or powder form. Materials used include unweldable metals.

MELD offers very high-quality depositions at 100% density with equiaxed grain structures, refined grain size, and excellent as-deposited properties. The residual stress formed in the deposited components is much less than stresses developed during casting or other processes that involve melting and solidification. MELD yields a metallurgical bond between the deposited material and substrate or previously deposited layers.
