AML3D to produce AM tooling component for Boeing

June 30, 2021

AML3D Limited, Edinburgh, Australia, reports that it has received a purchase contract from Boeing to produce an additively manufactured tooling component. The company will supply an Invar‑36 ‘mandrel tool artefact’, weighing approximately 150 kg, built using AML3D’s proprietary Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) process, a wire-based form of Directed Energy Deposition (DED).

The tooling component will be tested for its mechanical properties, internal soundness and vacuum integrity. It will also be used to assess AML3D’s ability to produce parts to Boeing specifications.

AML3D explains that although the part value being manufactured is below AUD$50,000, the significance of this initial purchase contract from Boeing is high, given the size and potential commercial benefits of future collaborations with the group.

Andrew Sales, AML3D Managing Director, stated, “AML3D is very excited to begin working with Boeing, one of the world’s largest aerospace companies. This purchase contract will provide the Company with a key opportunity to showcase its ability to produce parts on time and to specification with a high-quality customer as the world adapts to 3D printed solutions in addition to traditional manufacturing.”
