De-carbonising your supply chain with WAM® and metal 3D printing.

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.

SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE LEAD-TIME

WAM® significantly improves lead-time on large scale and exotic material parts.

The resources industry, including oil & gas, power, metals, minerals, and chemicals, face many challenges. Complexities arising from ageing infrastructure, dealing with new technically demanding assets, volatile prices and sustaining productivity place continuous pressure on profits. Add in the pressure of increased lead times  — a flow-on effect from Covid-19 pandemic slowed production – there is a demand to find improved supply chain solutions for parts.

AML3D’s contract manufacturing solutions, which use a patented Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) process, can minimise lead time to weeks, not months. This means less downtime for scheduled or unscheduled maintenance.

Due to costs incurred by equipment part failure and stops in facility production often running high, paired with the requirement to replace broken components and transport parts for repair to remote areas, operations may hold excess inventory. This approach significantly inflates working capital and augments operational costs. Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) can offset this inventory cost for asset owners by balancing the need for spare parts with just-in-time, on-demand production for broken or worn parts.

 Wire Additive Manufacturing – WAM® – allows for higher quality, scaleable part production by replacing traditional casting and forging methods.

MANUFACTURING TO API 20S

MANUFACTURING TO API 20S — Additively Manufactured Metallic Components for Use in the Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries.

Contract manufactured parts produced at AML3D’s Lloyd’s Registered certified additive manufacturing facility adhere to a range of industry standards. When producing metal components, we comply with the globally accepted American Welding Society Standard Specification for Fabrication of Metal Components using Additive Manufacturing AWS D20.1/D20.1M:2019 under the criticality classifications of Class A, B and C.

The release of the first edition of API Standard 20S has paved the way for emerging manufacturing methods, such as AML3D’s WAM®, to supply the sector with parts that incorporate technology and industry 4.0 to fabricate quicker and more sustainably than the traditional approach of casting and billet machining.

Depending on the part, we will also incorporate qualification to the industry standard, as seen in AML3D’s world first and largest 100% metal 3D printed and verified pipe spool for the high-pressure industry. Not only was this 940 kg monocoque pipe spool metal 3D printed in accordance with API 20S; it was compliant and passed acceptance testing for ASME B31.3. A requirement for piping is typically found in high-pressure environments such as petroleum, gas, chemical and related processing plants and terminals.

DE-CARBONISING PART MANUFACTURE AND PART SUPPLY CHAIN.

Understanding the complexity of industry standards is only part of the problem that we solve for our customers. Net zero, or reaching for carbon neutrality in the hydrocarbon and energy sector, is one of the world’s most important challenges. AML3D can help!

Many operations are looking at achieving net zero emissions from activities that are under their control. But those who truly want to make an impact understand that it’s not just assessing and improving the existing value chain; it is also doing the same for supply chain providers. There is no single solution, but instead, there are multiple solutions that require changes from consumers to governments to businesses. The approach to carbon neutrality may also see larger organisations encouraging and supporting smaller suppliers to their net zero journeys.

Using Wire Additive Manufactured parts for supply lowers carbon footprint and emissions. The WAM® process reduces carbon intensity by printing using wire feedstock in a near-net shape fashion, producing significantly less material waste when compared to billet machining. The carbon footprint of metal 3D printing components using WAM® is also considerably less when compared to traditional casting and forging manufacturing methods.
