Fooke becomes authorized Partner of 3D Printer Manufacturer MELD Manufacturing

At Formnext 2023, MELD Manufacturing Corporation announced that FOOKE GmbH has become an authorized supplier for MELD’s metal 3D printing technology.

This partnership marks an important step forward in the development of metal additive manufacturing and positions FOOKE as the leading provider of MELD’s innovative technology in Europe.

As part of this collaboration, FOOKE GmbH will offer a range of machines integrated with MELD’s innovative metal 3D printing technology as part of a complete FOOKE OEM system. This strategic partnership leverages the strengths of both companies, combining FOOKE’s expertise in precision machining and industrial solutions with MELD’s groundbreaking large-format metal 3D printing technology.

Through this partnership, FOOKE GmbH will offer its customers a seamless and comprehensive solution that incorporates the latest technology in metal additive manufacturing. The integration of MELD technology into FOOKE’s OEM systems will enable customers in the aerospace, rail, automotive and shipbuilding industries to push the boundaries of what is possible in the production of large metal parts.

“Our customers in the space market asked us to integrate this technology into our machines. When we learned about this new process, we saw value for our customers in other industries as well,” stated FOOKE CEO Johannes Fooke.

MELD’s proprietary technology offers several advantages over traditional metal 3D printing methods, including

No melting: MELD’s technology avoids melting metal, minimizing the risk of thermal stresses and ensuring superior material properties and minimal distortion.
Broad material compatibility: MELD’s technology can be applied to a wide range of commercially available metals, including aluminum, titanium, stainless steel and more.
Environmentally friendly: MELD’s process is environmentally friendly, generating minimal waste and reduced energy consumption.

“We are thrilled to become an authorized integrator for MELD Manufacturing Corporation,” said Hendrik Fooke, Head of Sales & Business Development at FOOKE GmbH. “This partnership aligns perfectly with our commitment to providing quality solutions to our customers. MELD’s technology will enable us to offer both additive and subtractive capability on our machines, opening doors to previously unattainable possibilities for large scale parts manufactured on site.”

FOOKE representatives can be visited at Formnext 2023 at the MELD booth in Hall 11, Booth B41.
