AML3D flying the flag for Australian Manufacturing

Niche stocks flying the flag for Australian manufacturing

AML3D’s Managing Director, Andrew Sales, was recently interviewed by Business Journalist, Tim Boreham, about flying the flag for Australian manufacturing. The following is an extract of the interview.

While it’s early days, AML3D is eyeing defence and marine applications for it’s additive metal layering technology based on proprietary software.

As CEO and 30 per cent shareholder Andy Sales explains, precision equipment traditionally has been whittled from a block of cast metal typically ordered from casting shops in Italy or Germany.

Like reverse peeling an onion, additive layering involves building the item from scratch. Apart from added precision, the company’s feedstock is obtained locally, this avoiding delays and supply chain shocks … such as coronavirus.

Another way of looking at the technology is a high-tech iteration of the century-old art of welding.

AML3D has built and sold its first “Panama chock”, which old salts would know as the heavy metal blocks with a hole in the middle.

Ropes go through the hole to moor a ship, so they have to be highly durable while as lightweight as possible.

Andy Sales says AML3D distinguishes itself because it sought and obtained accreditation for its process before listing.
