The order for a second ARCEMY X, for use by the US Navy, follows the supply of an Arcemy X in February 2023 to accelerate use of advanced Additive Manufacturing technologies across the US defence industrial base. This sale further strengthens the US Navy’s on-demand manufacturing capabilities and demonstrates their confidence in AML3D’s technology.

“We are extremely pleased the US Navy has purchased this Arcemy X-Edition 6700 system, demonstrating their confidence in our technology and is a validation of our strategic focus on delivering Arcemy systems to the US maritime and defence industries,” stated Sean Ebert, AML3D Interim CEO.

“This follows the US Department of Defense’s order of an Arcemy X early this year and further cements our strategic partnership with the US Navy. Our collaboration with Phillips Corp has been invaluable in expanding our presence in the US market and securing this order. We continue to actively engage with our partners to further deepen our presence in the US defence and federal sectors, which will drive further growth in sales into that sector,” added Ebert.
