Manufacturing News

Wire arc additive manufacturing specialist AML3D has announced its attainment of AS9100D:2016, an aerospace standard Quality Management System accreditation.

According to a statement from the company on Tuesday, the accreditation will enable it to manufacture flight and non-flight components, certified for the aviation, space and defence industries.

The QMS covers quality assurance and risk management.

It makes AML3D – which is both a machine builder and a contract manufacturer of AM parts using its own machines – only the second wire arc AM company in the world to gain AS9100D accreditation, it said.

Wire arc AM combines arc welding and robotic control and allows large-format, near-net shape parts to be built up in consecutive layers.

CEO Sean Ebert said it was both a significant milestone and a credit to the team’s expertise.

“It demonstrates our ability to deliver the highest  quality components into the aviation, space and defence sectors; enhances our credibility and  reputation as a leading provider of advanced additive manufacturing solutions and positions,” Ebert said in a statement to the ASX.  

“AML3D [is] a highly competitive player in the Aerospace market. We are continuing to see momentum build in our US ‘Scale-up’ strategy, which delivered over $12 million of orders in 2023, and expanding further into the US and other significant global Aerospace and Defence sectors, a key part of AML3D’s growth strategy, will be helped by having AS9100D .”  

The company announced in July 2022 that it had began implementation of the standard.
