Jul 6, 2022 | Company News, Press release

Boeing issues key purchase agreement to AML3D.
  • AML3D has received a key Purchase Agreement from existing customer The Boeing Company, to develop and produce 3D Printed structural test parts from Aluminium material;
  • Boeing is a world leader in aerospace across the Defence, Commercial and Space sectors;
  • Purchase Agreement scope is for testing and validation and allows AML3D to demonstrate its capacity to produce complex parts on time and to aerospace specification.

AML3D Limited (ASX:AL3) (“AML3D” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has received a further additional purchase agreement to develop and produce 3D printed components for The Boeing Company (NYSE:BA) (Boeing) based in St Louis, MO. These key components will involve extensive printing of high-strength Aluminium, an intensive testing program which is comparative to testing of structural components and aligned with the requirements of AS9100D quality assurance for “fly” parts. This comes after a key visit and detailed technical discussions by Boeing’s Director of Global Additive Manufacturing back in March this year.

As a leading global aerospace company, Boeing develops, manufactures and services commercial airplanes, defence products and space systems for customers in more than 150 countries. As a top US exporter, the company leverages the talents of a global supplier base to advance economic opportunity, sustainability and community impact. Boeing’s diverse team is committed to innovating for the future and living the company’s core values of safety, quality and integrity.

AML3D has received a purchase agreement for $140,000 (AUD) from Boeing on standard commercial terms, to supply various Aluminium test pieces and structural components typically used for structural “fly” components, for intense test evaluation in North America. These parts will be manufactured using AML3D’s proprietary Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) process.

This purchase agreement is for various key test artifacts and structural components to be used for testing and validation purposes that will be the basis of near-term future work.

Commenting on the purchase contract from Boeing, AML3D Managing Director Mr Andrew Sales said:

AML3D is excited to continue working with Boeing, and cementing our relationship with one of the world’s largest aerospace companies through our proprietary WAM® process. This purchase contract is a major step in our journey and will provide the Company further opportunity to now validate and produce parts on time and to specification for a high-quality Tier 1 customer, which is further endorsement of the adoption of our proprietary WAM® 3D printed solutions and core to our Strategy for the Company in the coming years.

This announcement has been authorised for release by the Board of AML3D.
