AML3D Limited, headquartered in Edinburgh, Australia, has received an order for an additional two ARCEMY 2600 Small Edition Additive Manufacturing machines from Laser Welding Solutions (LWS). This follows the successful commissioning and operation of the ARCEMY 2600 that LWS ordered in September 2023.

LWS is a supplier to the US Navy, and the new order is intended to help accelerate the qualification programme for ARCEMY nickel aluminium bronze components for the US Navy’s Submarine Industrial base.

The two ARCEMY 2600s ordered by LWS are being supplied under a twelve-month lease with an option to purchase the systems outright at any point during the lease term. The lease is valued at circa AUS $0.70 million and includes a twelve-month software licensing and technical support. In recognition of LWS’ need to accelerate the US Navy NAB qualification programme, the ARCEMY 2600s will be airfreighted from AML3D’s facility in Adelaide, South Australia to LWS’ Houston, Texas, USA, base and are expected to be operational within 8-10 weeks.

AML3D CEO Sean Ebert commented, “This new order for two additional ARCEMY systems helps deepen our relationship with LWS and illustrates how important our advanced manufacturing technology is to the US defence sector. AML3D ARCEMY systems can produce higher quality components, faster and with less waste than traditional manufacturing which is driving demand from the US Navy and the wider US Navy submarine industrial base supply chain.”
