US Navy Relies on 3D Printing to Strengthen Supply Chains

  • AML3D is supplying two more 3D printers to LWS to support the US Navy submarine industry.

  • The AUD$0.70 million deal includes a 12-month lease and technical support.

  • The ARCEMY 2600 printers aim to accelerate the production of high-quality, customized components for the US Navy.

Australian 3D printer manufacturer AML3D has received an order for two ARCEMY Small Edition 2600 3D printers from US Navy submarine component supplier Laser Welding Solutions (LWS). The deal, worth AUD$0.70 million (US$0.46 million), includes a 12-month lease agreement with an option to purchase the printers outright at any point during the lease term. A 12-month software license and ongoing technical support are also included.

These two 3D printers will add to LWS's existing ARCEMY 2600 system, acquired in September 2023. Together, they will support LWS's ongoing efforts to accelerate the qualification of Nickel Aluminum Bronze (NAB) components for the US Navy’s submarine industrial base.

By leasing two additional Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) systems to LSW, AML3D continues to advance its US ‘Scale-Up’ strategy. This initiative aims to address supply chain challenges within the US Department of Defense (DoD), focusing on US Navy submarines. According to AML3D, ‘Scale-Up’ delivered over AUD$12 million from orders in 2023.

AML3D will airfreight the two ARCEMY 2600 printers from Adelaide, South Australia, to LSW’s base in Houston, Texas. The 3D printers are expected to be operational within 8 to 10 weeks.

“This new order for two additional ARCEMY systems deepens our relationship with LWS and illustrates how important our advanced manufacturing technology is to the US defense sector,” commented AML3D CEO Sean Ebert. “AML3D ARCEMY systems can produce higher quality components faster and with less waste than traditional manufacturing methods, driving demand from the US Navy and the wider US Navy submarine industrial base supply chain.”
