AML3D enters aerospace sector

November 4, 2021

AML3D Limited, Edinburgh, Australia, has additively manufactured a high-strength alloy part for a leading North American aerospace company. The order sees AML3D enter the supply chain for one of its key target sectors for the first time, however, due to the confidentiality requirements and sensitive nature of the contract, the aerospace company cannot be named.

The bespoke prototype is manufactured from a high-strength, corrosion-resistant alloy using WAM® – also known as Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM), a wire-based form of Directed Energy Deposition (DED). AML3D was selected for this project due to the reported high strength and robust properties associated with the WAM technology process. The order is also a key element of AML3D’s strategy of expansion into the North American market.

“To have secured a key purchase order for prototype with a globally recognised space exploration company is further validation of our technological capability at AML3D,” stated Andrew Sales, AML3D Managing Director. “AML3D was identified for the provision of a specialty part that is manufactured by our peerless WAM 3D printing technology. The special alloy that will form the makeup of this part is unique to AML3D’s products and we look forward to supplying companies in the aerospace sector for years to come.”

He added, “I am confident that the momentum generated from this new aerospace purchase order will deliver a strong pipeline of opportunities in global space exploration part production both here in Australia and internationally, as we continue to demonstrate our capabilities to companies within this particular sector. AML3D has the desire and expertise to play a significant role in this burgeoning industry.”
