3D Metalforge technology arrives at Oil & Gas sectors in Australia

3D Metalforge (3DMF) an global Additive Manufacturing (AM) company, has signed an agreement with IKM Measurement Services Australia. The Agreement is part of 3D Metalforge’s strategy to build a footprint in the Australian oil & gas, resources and maritime additive manufacturing market and for IKM MSA to bring the latest AM technology to its customers.

The agreement appoints IKM MSA as an authorized partner to promote and represent 3D Metalforge’s products and services to its customers in Australia and Southeast Asia. During the Agreement, both parties will explore the possibility to expand this agreement into a global agreement.

Headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, IKM MSA is a subdivision of the IKM Group, and is a specialist service provider to the oil & gas, mining, transport and construction industries. IKM MSA offers calibration services from a NATA Accredited Laboratory as well as providing services to customer assets offshore, and acts as a supplier for test instruments and rental of measurement and major capital equipment. The wider IKM Group employs ∼2,500 people within 45 companies in 12 regions.1

IKM MSA will present and promote 3D Metalforge’s capabilities, products, and services to its clients as well as introduce clients to 3D Metalforge for direct management. For 3D Metalforge, the agreement is an opportunity to collaborate with IKM MSA providing its customers with the opportunity to explore AM technologies to produce parts faster, more cost effectively and as a means to bypass supply chain challenges. 3D Metalforge’s full range of AM services can provide benefits across the whole value chain, including identifying suitable parts for AM, design upgrades, part production and ultimately on-site production of parts on demand at the point of use.

Matthew Waterhouse, 3D Metalforge Managing Director, commented:

“We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with IKM Measurement Services Australia. We can truly offer customers a point of differentiation providing a range of AM-related services from diagnostic, design, part production through to training and cloud IP management; and in this instance, this is a great opportunity to promote our AM technology to IKM Australia’s customers.”

Stuart Taylor, Managing Director IKM Measurement Services Australia, commented:

“IKM Measurement Services Australia see this collaboration as an opportunity to continue expanding its service portfolio to our Oil and Gas customers.”
