US Defence Extends Testing Contract With AML3D

AML3D announced a contract extension for Nickel-Aluminum-Bronze (NAB) alloy characterization and strength testing to support the US Navy’s submarine program.

The contract has been signed with BlueForge Alliance, an integrator supporting the sustainment of the US Navy’s Submarine Industrial Base, and follows an initial alloy testing contract signed in March 2023.

The contract extension includes further NAB alloy characterization, corrosion, and strength testing, and demonstrates a range of ARCEMY printed alloys.

The work associated with this contract will commence immediately and will be carried out at AML3D’s facility in Adelaide, South Australia, over the next 8-10 weeks.

“We are excited to continue NAB alloy characterization and strength testing to support adoption of AML3D’s ARCEMY metal 3D Printing technology within the US Defence sector. This contract is further evidence of delivery against and our US scale up strategy and the ongoing development of a long-term, strategic partnership with the US Navy’s submarine industrial base,” said Sean Ebert, AML3D Interim CEO.

“This second NAB alloy testing contract comes at a time of heightened interest in the potential of advanced manufacturing technologies to help meet increasing demand driven by the AUKUS alliance. AML3D’s continuing success in the US means we are increasingly well positioned to access the opportunities that will be created, as a result of the AUKUS Alliance, in the Defence markets of the US and its partners, Australia and Britain.”
