The One Off Robotics Cell is an evolution of Meltio’s standard Engine Robot Integration and is also certified to operate with KUKA and ABB robotic arms.

One Off Robotics, an expert in the fabrication of robotic systems for AM and Meltio, a developer of metal 3D printing solutions using wire LMD technology, are teaming up to develop an Additive Manufacturing workcell. This system would include customer service and comprehensive support to assist end users in any industry.

Named the “One Off Robotics Cell”, Meltio said this metal additive manufacturing workcell powered by its Wire Laser Metal Deposition (W-LMD) technology can help achieve a faster, more efficient, and reliable part production cycle.

The system produces cost-effective, finely printed metal parts for applications in industries including automotive, aerospace, mining, oil and gas, and many others.  With an impressive deposition rate of up to 1 kg an hour, this system excels at creating clean parts that are fully dense and mechanically equivalent or superior to those created from traditional means. The system seamlessly integrates control of the system, allowing the user to easily adjust settings and print quickly. Its 8-axis system simplifies complex geometry printing and is configured to work with the Meltio Space robotic slicer, as well as other robotic additive software, a press release reads.

According to Meltio Engine Product Manager, Alejandro Nieto, “This new hardware system allows the customer to receive a ready-to-use cell for robotic metal 3D printing, removing the integration process and long assembly lead times.”


The new One Off Robotics Cell powered by Meltio, made in the USA uses standard welding wire and produces parts that are consistent, spatter-free, and clean. The robot and positioner are installed on a self-supporting platform inside a custom, laser-safe enclosure, which ensures safe operation and quick installation. The system package includes the robot, W-LMD system, two-axis positioner, Meltio machine vision laser alignment tool, welding camera, and safety enclosure. Package add-ons are available for the thermal SWIR camera, multi-material dual wire printing, and hot wire printing for increased speed. Meltio and One Off Robotics will also provide system training and instructional materials upon delivery to ensure unparalleled technical support for end users in any industry, Meltio states.
