AML3D, a publicly listed technology company focused on metal AM, has been granted a European patent for its Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM) process. The patent from the European Patent Office is aligned with the Australian patent granted in June 2021, and provides coverage over AML3D’s method and apparatus for manufacturing 3D metal parts.

The European process patent provides additional protection for AML3D’s Intellectual Property and is further validation of the company’s market leadership in advanced metal 3D printing solutions. Being the only additive manufacturing company to be granted a European process patent positions AML3D as the WAM technology leader in Europe.

While the company’s immediate focus is on scaling up sales of its ARCEMY systems to industrial manufacturers within the US Defence, Marine, and Aerospace industries, AML3D plans, over the medium term, to leverage its European technology leadership and US scale-up playbook to target sales to OEMs supporting the European Defence, Marine, and Aerospace industries. AML3D’s technology advantage provides clients with customized components, manufactured with significantly reduced time and costs, to de-risk their supply chains.

“This is a significant milestone for our company and our technology journey. The granting of this patent is further validation of our proprietary technology and also secures our position as a global provider of a major industrial metal 3D printing process. The market demand for advanced wire feedstock additive manufacturing, that can address supply chain risk, deliver time and cost savings, and better ESG outcomes, continues to accelerate. This additional international process patent protection will further strengthen our position in a significant and growing addressable market,” said Sean Ebert, Interim CEO of AML3D.

Recently, AML3D sold its second system – an ARCEMY ‘X-Edition 6700’ metal 3D printing unit – to the US Navy. The order, received from AML3D’s value-added reseller Philips Corporation, for AML3D’s largest ARCEMY metal 3D printing unit, was valued at approximately AUD 1.1 million (US$771,686)
