Adelaide based AML3D has announced an inaugural order for a 2600 Edition Arcemy system by Laser Welding Solutions (LWS), a supplier of Nickel Aluminum Bronze (NAB) components to the US Navy’s submarine industrial base.
The 2600 Edition Arcemy system is AML3D’s smallest industrial scale metal 3D printing system, and will be leased by LWS for a 12-month period with an option to purchase at any point during the term.
The lease is valued at circa $0.27 million and includes a software licensing and technical support contract. The 2600 Edition Arcemy unit will be airfreighted from AML3D’s facility in Adelaide, South Australia to LWS’ Houston, Texas base and is expected to be operational within 8 to 10 weeks.
“This lease contract with LWS is further evidence of increasing demand for AML3D’s technology within the US Navy submarine industrial base supply chain," said Sean Ebert, AML3D CEO.
"It is exciting to see the momentum within AML3D’s US Scale up strategy continuing to build and to see the commercial benefits flowing from our deepening relationship with BlueForge Alliance and we will remain alert to opportunities to maximize this advantage, such as lease agreements and the rapid deployment of our ARCEMY systems.”
AML3D is currently conducting Arcemy metal 3D printed NAB alloy testing for qualification to US Navy standards, and the LWS components will be used to support this qualification program.
