Build faster, stronger and
greener With ARCEMY®

It's made to Manufacture.


ARCEMY®, using patented Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) technology, enables makers to produce large-scale and exotic material parts faster, stronger and greener than traditional manufacturing methods.


Manufacture more superior, high-strength parts from a wide range of feedstock material grades using our patented Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) technology.

AML3D’s ARCEMY® and AMLSoft™ have specific processing parameters that can be managed to improve the material property performance of WAM® produced parts. Process parameters, such as welding current, travel speed, interpass temperatures and shielding gas, can be carefully controlled with some alloys to improve yield and tensile strength, ductility, hardness and fatigue life.


WAM® helps ARCEMY® users experience less downtime on part production and replacement with shorter production cycles, saving on inventory and decreasing supply chain bottom line costs.

WAM® and ARCEMY® enable a digitally driven, on-demand manufacturing experience reducing freight costs and time with systems located near-to-demand in a manufacturing facility, or at a client's location such as a shipyard. Design for Additive Manufacturing processes, combined with WAMSoft® path planning and print simulation accelerates the prototype making proof-of-concept to production process as the tooling process is negated.


Offering a greener, lower energy, reduced waste manufacturing solution, WAM® disrupts traditional metal manufacturing processes, including billet-machining, casting, and forging.

With many businesses focusing on ESG targets ahead of Net Zero 2050, manufacturers are reaching towards novel technologies to minimise adverse environmental effects. Technologies such as WAM® use less material resulting in lower material costs and energy usage and can be seen as a must-have and game changer. AML3D's technology is proven to support up to 80% savings in material waste compared to cast and forged methods.

Software that Delivers



WAMsoft® path planning software for Wire Additive Manufacturing technology offers unparalleled precision, efficiency, and control in the fabrication process. This innovative software integrates with the AML3D’s AMLSoft®, empowering users to generate optimal tool paths for complex geometries with unprecedented speed and accuracy.

Considered the operating system, AMLSoft™ contains the core features that allow AM operators to Wire Additively Manufacture metal parts with AML3D’s ARCEMY® successfully. This innovative software enables the AM operator to manage integral parameters such as material selection, wire-feed speeds, gas flow, and interpass temperatures.


WAM® combines an electric arc with certified welding wire feedstock to metal 3D print medium to large-scale, free-form parts.

Our patented WAM® process is characterised under the 3D printing standards for Direct Energy Deposition. It challenges other wire-feed-stock metal printing techniques such as Electron Beam, Wire Fed Laser and Laser sintering processes. Unlike these different processes, WAM® can be used to print metal parts in an open free-form fabrication environment using localised inert gas. With localised gas shielding, the need for an enclosed chamber of any kind is eliminated, which does not limit the component build size. Various gas mixtures, controlled cooling can be used to enhance the properties of the final part.
