AML3D Limited has received an additional purchase agreement to develop and produce 3D printed components for The Boeing Company. These key components will involve extensive printing of high-strength Aluminium, an intensive testing program that is comparative to the testing of structural components, and will be aligned with the requirements of AS9100D quality assurance for “fly” parts. The purchase agreement comes after a key visit, and detailed technical discussions, by Boeing’s Director of Global Additive Manufacturing back in March this year.
As a leading global aerospace company, Boeing develops, manufactures, and services commercial airplanes, defense 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.
AML3D has received the purchase agreement for $140,000 (AUD) from Boeing on standard commercial terms, to supply various Aluminium test pieces and structural components typically used for structural “fly” components, for intense test evaluation in North America. These parts will be manufactured using AML3D’s proprietary Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM) process.
This purchase agreement is for various key test artifacts and structural components – to be used for testing and validation purposes that will be the basis of near-term future work.
“AML3D is excited to continue working with Boeing, and cementing our relationship with one of the world’s largest aerospace companies through our proprietary WAM process. This purchase contract is a major step in our journey and will provide the Company further opportunity to now validate and produce parts on time and to specification for a high-quality Tier 1 customer, which is further endorsement of the adoption of our proprietary WAM 3D printed solutions and core to our strategy for the Company in the coming years,” commented Andrew Sales, Managing Director of AML3D, on the purchase contract from Boeing.
