AML3D Limited, Edinburgh, Australia, has announced that it has agreed to expand its purchase contract with Boeing to include the next phase of additively manufactured aluminium test parts in the form of prototype components. This is said to increase the value of the purchase contract by 150%.

The decision to expand the scope of the order follows an initial contract with Boeing in June 2021 to supply an additively manufactured tooling component, which was followed by Boeing’s Director of Additive Manufacturing inspecting AML3D’s facilities in March 2022 and a second purchase contract for AUD $140,000 for structural aluminium test parts in July 2022.

AML3D’s expansion into the aerospace and defence sectors is underpinned by progress towards the implementation of the Aerospace Quality Management System, AS9100D:2016 Accreditation. AS9100D:2016 will enable the company to manufacture ‘fly parts’ for use in aircraft, and, when fully implemented, AML3D states that it will be only the second Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM), a wire-based form of Directed Energy Deposition (DED), company in the world to achieve the standard.

“This expanded purchase contract with Boeing demonstrates the growing momentum in our commercial relationship with one of the world’s largest aerospace companies,” stated Andrew Sales, AML3D Managing Director. “AML3D has already demonstrated to Boeing that our proprietary WAM® 3D metal printing technology produces high quality parts on time and to specification. The expanded purchase contract is strategically important as it moves AML3D towards being embedded into Boeing’s supply chain, which aligns with the delivery of our growth targets for the aerospace sector.”
