About AML3D

AML3D is disrupting metal part supply chains using patented Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®).

We utilise new technologies to pioneer and lead additive manufacturing globally.

We partner with our clients to enable them to become globally competitive. We do this by helping them to establish Industry 4.0 capability through our additive manufacturing solutions, using IIoT technology.

Our technology supports smarter, leaner and greener manufacturing. It disrupts casting, forging and billet machining processes using technology that challenges the global manufacturing supply chain.

Our Company

AML3D combines a deep understanding of state of the art welding science, robotics automation, materials engineering and proprietary software to produce an automated 3D printing system operating in a freeform environment. This enables fast and efficient manufacture of components and structures using our patented Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) process, which is more cost-effective and has increased strength compared to traditional casting, forging or billet machining methods.

Building on the company’s unique expertise, achievements and continued relationships with Universities and scientific organisations (Flinders University, Deakin University, RMIT and CSIRO), AML3D Limited has further upgraded the manufacturing service bureau headquartered in Adelaide. It still remains the only metals diversified large-scale WAM® production facility in the Southern Hemisphere and is capable of producing finished parts and components to a certified standard under an accredited Quality Management System.

Entrepreneur’s Program supported and helped to fund the initial pilot operation, systems and software in order to demonstrate the technology. During this time several pilot trials were completed resulting in further software development, know-how and improvement of process procedures, and has been encompassed by the achievement of ISO9001 Quality Management Certification and AML becoming the world’s first accredited wire-feedstock Additive Manufacturing Facility through Lloyd’s Register (Singapore). This was successfully completed as of March 2019.

The initial objective was to establish a commercially viable contract service/manufacturing (facility), AM/3DP design engineering service, product sales of proprietary equipment, software licencing, technical support and consumable sales.

In addition to being the OEM for the ARCEMY® print module, AML3D provides a Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) service that optimises that supports customers with the optimisation of their parts for the WAM process.
