Sale of ARCEMY® to RMIT’s Additive Manufacturing 3D Printing Centre.
- RMIT to purchase ARCEMY® large scale 3D printing unit for research at its globally renowned AM/3D Printing Centre
- ARCEMY® printing Unit to focus on a range of Alloys and new additive manufacturing R&D initiatives at RMIT
- Unit to be supplied will 3D print various alloys and up to 750 kgs in mass
AML3D Limited (ASX: AL3) (“AML3D” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the sale of one of its ARCEMY® WAM® printing units to RMIT.
This c. $400k sale comprises one of AML3D’s ARCEMY® WAM® printing units which is capable of 3D printing all metallic alloys up to dimensions of c. 1.5 m3 and mass of ~ 750 kgs with an approximate deposition rate of up to 7-8 kgs/hour, depending on the material being used.
AML3D’s ARCEMY® units are unique in that they are certified across a very wide range of welding wire feedstock-based metals, making them significantly more flexible than powder-based printers.
AML3D will work with RMIT on the installation, commissioning and training of this unit which is expected to be used for R&D across a number of metal alloy grades for post-doctorate research, education and industry-related applications and research at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
Commenting on the sale, AML3D’s Managing Director, Andy Sales, said:
It’s encouraging to see Universities and Research institutes seeing the value in our ARCEMY® printing modules and educational research into the WAM® process. To be able to supply the RMIT Additive Manufacturing Centre with our sophisticated integrated wire-based ARCEMY® 3D printing unit, under the guidance of Prof Milan Brandt and industry expert Alex Kingsbury is exciting and endorsing. There is an expectation that we will work closely with RMIT in the future around specific R&D programs that will benefit both parties in research, industry application and student based learning and research.
Prof. Brandt, the Centre Director, said:
We are excited to be working closely with AML3D on delivering this new 3D printing technology to Victorian organisations. The equipment funded through the Victorian Higher Education State Investment Fund complements our current range of 3D printing technologies and opens the opportunities for working closely with Victorian and more broadly Australian organisations on delivering new products and processes based on this technology as well as training the next generation of engineers in digital manufacturing.
This announcement has been authorised for release by the Board of AML3D.
