Aurora Labs delivers trial AM part for BAE Systems Maritime Australia project

October 4, 2021

Aurora Labs Limited (A3D), headquartered in Canning Vale, Australia, reports that it has completed the BAE Systems Maritime Australia (BAESMA) trial Additive Manufacturing project, delivering metal additively manufactured trial marine components with a comprehensive manufacturing report to BAESMA for assessment.

A3D explains that its own internal evaluation of the parts, which were additively manufactured on the company’s RMP-1 Beta prototype AM machine, would be valuable to the company’s ongoing technology development pathway, which is currently in its final phase and moving to commercialisation.

The trial parts were completed using A3D’s qualified high-power AM parameters, with internal and third-party testing; positive results were reported in terms of part quality, dimensional accuracy and build rate. The project is said to have provided A3D’s technical team with useful information in relation to the overall progression of its technology.

Peter Snowsill, Aurora CEO, commented, “Understanding and meeting customer requirements is key to proving A3D technology and driving our commercialisation strategy. We are becoming more efficient at analysing the function of parts, setting parameters and employing techniques to obtain these outcomes using A3D’s high-power printing. This project has been very beneficial to our learning in that respect and we are really pleased with the outcomes.”
