AML3D, a company providing commercial large-scale “Additive Metal Layering” 3D printing services, is pleased to announce that it received a purchase contract to produce a 3D printed tooling component from The Boeing Company.

Commenting on the 3D printed tooling component purchase contract from Boeing, AML3D Managing Director Mr Andrew Sales said, “AML3D is very excited to begin working with Boeing, one of the world’s largest aerospace companies. This purchase contract will provide the Company with a key opportunity to showcase its ability to produce parts on time and to specification with a high-quality customer as the world adapts to 3D printed solutions in addition to traditional manufacturing.”

As a leading global aerospace company, Boeing develops, manufactures and services commercial airplanes, defence products and space systems for customers in more than 150 countries. As a top US exporter, the company leverages the talents of a global supplier base to advance economic opportunity, sustainability and community impact. Boeing’s diverse team is committed to innovating for the future and living the company’s core values of safety, quality and integrity.

AML3D has received a purchase contract from Boeing on standard commercial terms, to supply an Invar‑361 ”mandrel tool artifact”, weighing c.150kg, using the Company’s proprietary Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®) process.

This initial purchase contract is for one artifact which will be assessed and tested for its mechanical properties, internal soundness, vacuum integrity and to assess AML3D’s ability to produce to Boeing specifications.

Although the value of the 3D printed tooling component being manufactured is below AUD$50,000, the significance of this initial purchase contract from Boeing is high given the size and credibility of the counterparty together with the potential commercial benefits of future collaborations with the group.
