Extension of submarine contract

Australian 3D printing company AML3D has had its contract extended by the US Navy to characterize and test nickel aluminum bronze (NAB) alloy material for its submarines.

The US$0.28 mn contract extension will be carried out at AML3D’s facility in Adelaide, South Australia, over the next 8-10 weeks.

“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,” said AML3D interim CEO Sean Ebert. “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.”
