3D printing pioneer Australian AML3D has entered into a purchase order on standard commercial terms valued at approximately AUD 215,000 with Chevron Australia to produce 2 subsea pipeline fittings using AML3D’s patented Wire Additive Manufacturing advanced 3D metal printing technology solution.Under the order, AML3D will manufacture next generation large-scale, steel pipeline fittings to meet both American Society of Mechanical Engineers and American Petroleum Institute standards. Once produced, the fittings will undergo rigorous, independent mechanical testing to validate the suitability of AML3D’s WAM technology for use in subsea programs. The WAM manufactured fittings will include materials to improve corrosion resistance in extreme and hostile environments.The Chevron order builds on AML3D’s track record of advanced manufacturing for the Oil and Gas industry. The Chevron purchase order follows AML3D’s successful 3D metal printing of an 8 tonne commercial pressure vessel for a separate Tier One Oil and Gas Client and the world’s largest certified high pressure, subsea piping spool.AML3D Limited, a publicly listed technology company founded in 2014, utilises new technologies to pioneer and lead metal additive manufacturing globally. Disrupting the traditional manufacturing space, AML3D has developed and patented a Wire Additive Manufacturing process that metal 3D prints commercial, large-scale parts for Aerospace, Defence, Maritime, Manufacturing, Mining and Oil & Gas. AML3D provides parts contract manufacturing from its Technology Centre in Adelaide, Australia, and is the OEM of ARCEMY, an industrial metal 3D printing system that combines IIoT and Industry 4.0 to enable manufacturers to become globally competitive.
