AML3D sells ARCEMY 3D printer to a supplier of the US Navy

AML3D announced the sale of an ARCEMY Edition 2600 system, valued at approximately A$1.1 million, to US Navy supplier Laser Welding Solutions (LWS).

The system will be used by the US supplier Laser Welding Solutions (LWS), which has been operating it since September 2023 as part of a nickel-aluminum-bronze qualification program for the US Navy. The ARCEMY Edition 2600 system is AML3D’s smallest industrial metal 3D printing system and can produce nickel-aluminum-bronze components for US Navy applications.

This sale follows the recent announcement that LWS will lease two additional ARCEMY Edition 2600 systems, with the option to purchase them, to support the development of metal 3D printed components for the US Navy submarine industry. The conversion of the first lease to a sale demonstrates the progress AML3D is making in integrating its advanced manufacturing technology into the US Navy’s supplier network. The U.S. is the largest additive manufacturing market in the world and AML3D continues to see great potential for future defense contracts.

AML3D CEO Sean Ebert said: “This first conversion of a lease agreement with LWS into an outright purchase of an ARCEMY system, including an annual service and maintenance component is exciting. It is not only a great example of progress against our strategic objective of embedding our proprietary WAM technology across the US Navy supply chain, but it also creates the opportunity to establish recurring service and maintenance revenues going forward.

The continuing momentum within our US scale up strategy underpins the investment we are making in our US manufacturing hub and headquarters at Ohio, We are looking to maximize the opportunities we have across the US Defence sector, especially the Navy’s submarine industrial base, but also across US based, global Tier 1 Oil & Gas, Marine and Aerospace companies. In parallel, we are exploring ways to leverage our US ‘Scale-up’ playbook to access additional, significant Defence markets such as the UK and Australia, which have the benefit of being AUKUS partners.”
