AML3D enters US defence market with ARCEMY® sale to US Navy

Adelaide-based AML3D Limited has won a $1millipn contract from the US Navy to supply a large-scale, industrial ARCEMY ‘X-Edition 6700’ Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing metal 3D printing system. This will support the US Navy’s accelerating adoption of Wire Arc additive manufacturing technology which is seen as a means to produce on-demand industrial grade parts. This is critical to rapidly scaling the parts supply to the US Navy’s submarine industrial base.

The ARCEMY® order was placed by BlueForge Alliance (“BlueForge”), a US Department of Defence intermediary supporting the acceleration of advanced manufacturing technologies across the US defence industrial base.

The sale accelerates AML3D’s strategic focus on supplying ARCEMY® systems, predominantly to the US maritime and defence sectors.

The sale of AML3D’s largest ARCEMY® system is valued at approximately AUD$1.0 million (US$697,800)1, payable up front and upon meeting delivery and installation milestones. The system’s supply, shipping, installation, and commissioning will commence upon receipt of the Authority to Proceed from BlueForge and is expected to be completed during calendar year 2023.

A further expansion of AML3D’s strategic partnership with the US Navy is expected with an additional contract for metal characterisation testing using AML3D’s ARCEMY® systems for the provision of parts to the industrial base, expected in Q3.

The ARCEMY® ‘X-Edition 6700’ system will be located at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, the largest science & energy laboratory in the US Department of Energy system and a key partner to the US Navy and other US global tier 1 clients.

“This sale is a significant opportunity for AML3D, as it is part of a long-term strategic partnership with the US Navy helping them scale up submarine production with advanced additive manufacturing technology,” AML3D CEO Ryan Millar said. “This opportunity with the US Navy and the Submarine Industrial Base aligns with ALM3D’s strategy of focusing on ARCEMY® product sales, especially in the US maritime and defence sectors.”

Publicly listed AML3D Limited was founded in 2014 and uses new technologies to pioneer and lead metal additive manufacturing globally. Disrupting the traditional manufacturing space, AML3D has developed and patented a Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) process that metal 3D prints commercial, large-scale parts for Aerospace, Defence, Maritime, Manufacturing, Mining and Oil & Gas. AML3D provides parts contract manufacturing from its Technology Centre in Adelaide, Australia, and is the OEM of ARCEMY®, an industrial metal 3D printing system that combines IIoT and Industry 4.0 to enable manufacturers to become globally competitive.
