AML3D soars into aerospace and defence markets
26 September 2022
Aerospace giant Boeing has expanded the scope of a commercial partnership with South Australian-based AML3D Limited, accelerating the company’s entry into the aerospace and defence markets.
A world leader in large-scale 3D metal printing, AML3D will now be working on the next phase of a contract for 3D metal printed aeroplane parts, by developing prototype components using its patented Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) process.
The expansion of the contract with Boeing builds upon the initial agreement in June 2021 for AML3D to supply a 3D printed tooling component. This was followed by a facilities inspection in March 2022 by Boeing’s Director of Additive Manufacturing.
AML3D Managing Director Andrew Sales said this news demonstrates the growing momentum in the company’s commercial relationship with one of the world’s largest aerospace companies.
“AML3D has already demonstrated to Boeing that our proprietary WAM® 3D metal printing technology produce high quality parts on time and to specification,” said Mr Sales.
“The expanded purchase contract is strategically important as it moves AML3D towards being embedded into Boeing’s supply chain, which aligns with the delivery of our growth targets for the aerospace sector.”
