Certified

CERTIFIED

AML3D® is a globally certified Wire Additive Manufacturer. Certified through Lloyd’s Register, with ISO9001:2015 QMS, American Welding Society and BizSafe3 compliance.

AML3D Parts are Stronger

STRONGER*

We are using WAM® to create higher strength parts with superior properties from a wide range of feedstock material grades.

AML3D parts are manufactured faster

FASTER

You can experience less downtime on part replacement with shorter production cycles, saving on inventory and the supply chain bottom line.

AML3D parts are efficient

EFFICIENT

We are disrupting traditional metal manufacturing processes, such as casting and forging, therefore lower energy costs and a “greener” manufacturing solution.

EQUIPPING DEFENCE

Metal 3D printing has evolved with AML3D Wire Arc Manufacturing (WAM®), and the creation of high strength, high wear resistance and on-demand parts for the Defence industry.

WAM® or Metal 3D Printing can support parts manufacture across Defence programs, be they Maritime, Land or Airforce focused. Parts printed by AML3D can not only support new programs with innovative and optimised components; but also, sustainment programs where parts may be obsolete or difficult and expensive to obtain.

At AML3D®, we are committed to building sovereign capability. We understand that sovereign capability is critical to the Defence Industry and are excited to be taking part in supporting the Sovereign Industrial Capability Priorities with WAM®.

With parts manufacturing occurring at our AML3D® Adelaide Facility, and an extensive local supply chain, we can partner with Primes and Defence Capability Service Providers in the delivery of manufacturing for projects in accordance with Australian Industry Capability Program requirements.

We are proud to say that all of our parts for Defence are printed at our Adelaide Manufacturing Facility.

CERTIFIED PARTS FOR DEFENCE

Certification and accreditation are integral to manufacturing for the Defence Industry. Not only does it ensure the safety of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel, it assures product integrity, reliability of operations, maximises productivity, mitigates risk and demonstrates compliance with industry codes.

AML3D® is the first Wire Additive Manufacturing facility in the world to receive the certification for Lloyd’s Register “Additive Manufacturing Facility Qualification” and provides accreditation for metal 3D printed parts manufactured at our Adelaide facility. Ensuring the end-use part is manufactured to global standards and is fit for commercial use.

All parts manufactured by AML3D® are compliant with the globally accepted American Welding Society. Under the criticality classifications of Class A, B and C, we manufacture to the Standard Specification for Fabrication of Metal Components using Additive Manufacturing (AWS D20.1/D20.1M:2019). Additionally, we operate a Quality Management System in compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 for all 3D metal printing, additive manufacturing, and welding structures.

We are currently undergoing DNV-GL Certification for Maritime and Oil & Gas and are expecting completion early 2021.

STRONGER PARTS,
FASTER FOR DEFENCE

AML3D® WAM® provides improved part performance, resulting in stronger and lighter weight components; faster.

Traditional manufacturing methods have design constraints that additive manufacturing can overcome. Complex shapes can be metal 3D printed, using less material than cast and forged methods. Our ASME standard wire feedstock used for fabrication allows us to focus on quality and material benefits for your part. Our accessibility to wire feedstock, enables for a faster production time, with little to no lead time required for sourcing manufacturing materials.

At AML3D®, we can manufacture with expensive high strength to weight metals such as Titanium. Titanium is commonly used in aerospace to create end-use products, resulting in lightweight components that improve the fuel economy of aircraft, land vehicles and navy ships; enhancing mobility and ultimately the survival of personnel.

Independent testing has shown that Wire Additive Manufacturing high strength steel has achieved 30% higher ultimate tensile strength than forged standards. This result highlights the potential use of WAM® for structural components for maritime vessels and land vehicles.

Furthermore, designs can be optimised with 3D modelling in the 3D printing process for improved performance. Optimised parts often result in removing weaknesses, preventing failure in critical components. Design for Additive Manufacture (DfAM) is further enabled with AML3D®s proprietary software WAMSoft®, where it is possible to plan pathways for deposition digitally. Simulation through our digital platform, AMLSoft® results in part success before the manufacture starts, saving time and cost while ensuring the success of part manufacture.

In Defence, due to the many requirements for product variants, traditional methods of “one size fits all” mass production manufacturing is not appropriate for all Defence programs. 3D printing technologies like Wire Additive Manufacturing that can scale have a unique application in creating tooling for many composite products. These products include maritime components, soldier and law enforcement body armour, unmanned aerial vehicle components and aircraft components. WAM® is a proven, cost-effective method to manufacture tooling to meet this demand.
