3D Metalforge Pte Ltd, headquartered in Singapore, has signed a non-exclusive outline agreement with Woodside Energy Ltd, Perth, Australia, to supply additively manufactured parts, production technologies and digital part library development services.

The agreement, effective from March 2022, is valid for two years with an optional extension. The agreement, to produce metallic additively manufactured components made via Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Directed Energy Deposition (DED) Additive Manufacturing technologies to be used in Woodside-operated facilities, will support Woodside’s operational supply chains with replacement parts available with shortened lead times compared to traditional sources.

3D Metalforge’s agreement, subject to subsequent purchase orders, may include the engineering and design services, printing, post-production processing, testing and delivery of additively manufactured components including but not limited to valves (body, stem, seals), pipe fittings (flanges, elbows, tees), manifolds and pumps (impeller, inducer, body) and other parts as requested by Woodside.

This agreement is expected to allow the rapid production of parts for Woodside, reducing operational risk and local inventory holdings, with a more certain cost horizon and increased sustainability.

Matthew Waterhouse, CEO, 3D Metalforge, commented, “This agreement underlines 3DMF’s commitment to expanding within the Australasian market with a major focus upon the Oil & Gas, Mining and Defence sectors. 3DMF is currently working with several global companies who face similar challenges to better manage their parts supply chain risks and are addressing that risk by leveraging the benefits of Additive Manufacturing technologies combined with the expertise of 3DMF as an established international provider of AM capabilities.”
