AML3D Limited, Edinburgh, Australia, has been awarded Additive Manufacturing Facility Accreditation with wire-feedstock from DNV, the Marine & Industrial Classification Society. The accreditation comprises an ‘Approval of Manufacturer’ (AoM) certificate and demonstrates the company’s patented Wire Additive Manufacturing WAM® process, also known as Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM), a wire-based form of Directed Energy Deposition (DED), meets the class certification standards for integrity and quality that are applied to critical components in the oil & gas and marine industry.

According to AML3D, it is the first wire-feedstock-based Additive Manufacturing company to achieve this accreditation: Approval to produce Class certified components made of steel for hull structure and equipment; Copper alloys for valves, fittings and general applications as per DNV’s rules, which operate in extreme load, pressure or corrosive environments. The company states that this provides them with a competitive advantage as they are currently the only wire-feed AM company accredited to supply these high-value parts to DNV’s global customer base.

This DNV accreditation is said to closely align with AML3D’s growth strategy to increase sales of existing products, access new markets and sales and expand its potential customer base. It also aligns with the company’s strategy to focus on enhancing the quality of its products and service to customers.

“Similar to our Lloyds Register accreditation, DNV Facility Accreditation allows us further access into the marine markets for high value essential components,” stated Andrew Sales, AML3D Managing Director. “DNV offers a broad range of customers including a heavy focus on the oil & gas sector, a key growth target for AML3D. This accreditation is a game changer for us, in terms of the ability to issue Class Certificates using our WAM process. We’re very excited to have a great relationship with DNV and explore opportunities amongst their customer base.”
