AML3D, an industrial Australian 3D printing company, has received an order for an additional two ARCEMY Small Edition 2600 systems from Laser Welding Solutions (LWS). This order follows the successful commissioning and operation of the ARCEMY 2600 LWS ordered in September 2023. LWS is a supplier to the US Navy and the new order is intended to help accelerate the qualification program for ARCEMY Nickel Aluminum Bronze (NAB) components for the US Navy’s Submarine Industrial base.

The two ARCEMY 2600s ordered by LWS are being supplied under a 12-month lease with an option to purchase the systems outright at any point during the lease term. The lease is valued at circa US$0.46 million (AUD$0.70 million) and includes a 12-month software licensing and technical support. In recognition of LWS’ need to accelerate the US Navy NAB qualification program, the ARCEMY 2600s will be airfreighted from AML3D’s facility in Adelaide, South Australia, to LWS’ Houston, Texas, base and are expected to be operational within 8 to 10 weeks.

This second, larger LWS order demonstrates the continuing success of AML3D’s US scale-up strategy, which includes embedding ARCEMY systems with suppliers to the US Navy’s Submarine Industrial base. As the largest AM in the world, the US is the most important growth market for AML3D. The company is progressing with plans to establish a US headquarters, manufacturing hub, and sales team in Ohio to better support US customers and drive additional contract wins.

“This new order for two additional ARCEMY systems helps deepen our relationship with LWS and illustrates how important our advanced manufacturing technology is to the US Defence sector. AML3D ARCEMY systems can produce higher quality components, faster and with less waste than traditional manufacturing which is driving demand from the US Navy and the wider US Navy submarine industrial base supply chain,” said Sean Ebert, CEO of AML3D.
