Rina Warship Banner (728 x 90 px)AML3D announced it has signed a contract with the Australian Government Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) to provide components for testing in marine applications.

The A$0.24 million contract requires AML3D to 3D metal print two representative marine components using a Nickel Aluminium Bronze (NAB) alloy and high strength duplex steel alloy. Manufacturing of the test components will commence immediately at AML3D’s facility in Adelaide for delivery during FY24.

The contract demonstrates AML3D’s continuing success in diversifying into additional global defence markets, to complement the strong US growth. The company’s US ‘Scale up’ strategy secured close to A$12 million of contracts in CY2023, with a particular focus on supporting the US Navy’s submarine industrial base. AML3D is leveraging its US playbook to accelerate entry into additional defence markets to meet growing demand for advanced manufacturing solutions.

AML3D CEO Sean Ebert said, “It is very exciting to be directly supplying test NAB and Duplex steel components to the DSTG, which is tasked with assessing the best of Australian science, technology and innovation to address Australia’s Defence and national security challenges. AML3D’s WAM manufactured NAB and duplex steel has passed multiple rounds of marine defence testing in the US and here at home. This gives us confidence we will meet the DSTG requirements, creating opportunities for significant new contracts. AML3D demonstrating the value of our advanced WAM technology for Australian marine defence applications aligns with strategic objective of continuing to expand into defence markets that display the same strong demand signals underpinning our US success.”
