AML3D has sold another industrial-scale ARCEMY ‘X-Edition 6700’ Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) metal 3D printing system (ARCEMY X), to be located at the US Navy’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) in Danville, Virginia.

The order, received from AML3D’s value-added reseller Philips Corporation, for AML3D’s largest ARCEMY metal 3D printing unit, is valued at approximately AUD 1.1 million (US$771,686). Installation is anticipated to be completed early in 2024, with payment made in stages, being partly upfront and then upon meeting delivery and installation milestones.

Phillips Corporation is sourcing the ARCEMY X to contribute to the establishment of a US Navy supply chain and industrial base that is resilient, competitive, and sustainable. Specifically, the US Navy’s AM CoE is working to rapidly adopt advanced manufacturing technologies to drive innovation and competitiveness within a sovereign defense and submarine industrial base.

This order for a second ARCEMY X, for use by the US Navy, follows the supply of an ARCEMY X in February 2023 to accelerate the use of advanced additive manufacturing technologies across the US defense industrial base. This sale further strengthens the US Navy’s on-demand manufacturing capabilities and demonstrates its confidence in AML3D’s technology.

“We are extremely pleased the US Navy has purchased this ARCEMY ‘X-Edition 6700’ system, demonstrating their confidence in our technology and is a validation of our strategic focus on delivering ARCEMY systems to the US maritime and defense industries,” said Sean Ebert, Interim CEO of AML3D. “This follows the order, for the US Department of Defence, of an ARCEMY X early this year and further cements our strategic partnership with the US Navy. Our collaboration with Phillips Corp has been invaluable in expanding our presence in the US market and securing this order. We continue to actively engage with our partners to further deepen our presence in the US defense and federal sectors, which will drive further growth in sales into that sector.”
