Multitrade 3D Systems appointed as Meltio’s official sales partner to boost growth in the Sub-Saharan Africa metal additive manufacturing market

Multitrade 3D Systems and Meltio, based in the Jaén province of southern Spain in the eastern part of the autonomous community of Andalusia, a disruptive laser metal deposition technology manufacturer have announced that Multitrade 3D Systems is going to play a key role in the distribution and support of the Meltio metal 3D printing solutions in the Sub-Saharan Africa market, as an official sales partner.

Meltio offers a pioneering metal 3D printing solution that enables industrial applications with a process built around welding wire, the safest, cleanest, and most affordable metal feedstock in the market.

Metal additive manufacturing is one of the segments of the AM market that has grown the most in recent years. Metal additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, offers the possibility to produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes. Metal additive manufacturing offers design freedom with the ability to manufacture parts or components from a wide range of materials.

Components that would not have even been possible just a few years ago can now be made to high standards. No longer solely a prototyping technology, Additive Manufacturing is now being used for the production of series components for the most demanding applications.

Additive Manufacturing is a technology that produces three-dimensional parts layer by layer from a material, be it polymer or metal based. The method relies on a digital data file being transmitted to a machine that then builds the component.

Industries such as aerospace and automotive have found in these technologies a solution for the development of final parts with shorter lead times, and fewer costs. Other industries where the technology is widely adopted and accepted by academia, dentistry, jewellery, medical and the tooling industries.

Multitrade 3D Systems will focus on building a supportive ecosystem for Meltio’s technology in the Sub-Saharan Africa territory partnering and driving business opportunities alongside technology centres, machine tool companies, robotic integrators, academia, and industry.

Multitrade 3D Systems
Due to the increasing trend of Additive Manufacturing (AM) in South Africa, Multitrade 3D Systems (Pty) Ltd was established in 2019 to further support the engineering industry that Multitrade Distributors currently supports with subtractive manufacturing tooling solutions. The company specialises in supplying Sub-Saharan Africa with metal additive manufacturing/3D printing machines. They are the authorised GE Additive sales representatives for South Africa and now Meltio sales representatives for Sub-Saharan Africa.

Meltio takes metal additive manufacturing to the next level by developing high-performance, affordable, and easy-to-use metal 3D printing solutions using wire LMD technology. The company’s mission is to delight customers, partners and employees by pioneering the development of affordable metal 3D printing systems that are reliable, safe, and powerful, continually reinforcing their status as disruptors.
