Since 2020, SPEE3D, and the Australian Army, have conducted several field trials, taking their WarpSPEE3D tactical printer far out into the rugged bushland of Mount Bundey, and Bradshaw Training Areas. At these locations, the Australian Army’s Additive Manufacturing Cell (AMC) technicians manufactured dozens of case studies, proving that it is possible to 3D print, replace, validate, certify, and put to use metal applications in the field.


Steven Camilleri, CEO of SPEE3D stated, “SPEE3D is very proud and humbled to be recognized in the US for our work with Defense. We must acknowledge that the Australian Army’s dedication to pursuing new innovation with us has been the backbone of our success. Their commitment to this project helped develop the groundwork for a better sovereign manufacturing future for Defense forces worldwide”.  Developed in Australia, SPEE3D’s metal 3D printing technology offers a fast and economical additive manufacturing capability. It is also the world’s only proven capability that is able to be successfully deployed, and instantaneously 3D manufacture and supply metal parts on-demand in remote, harsh environments.
