Additive manufacturing group Amaero International and Fletcher Insulation will jointly develop a 3D printing application to provide superior tooling.
Amaero CEO Barrie Finnin said the two companies would print tooling and test it under full operational load.
Fletcher, the manufacturer of Pink Batts and Sisalation, and Amaero will jointly develop the new tooling production technique and commercialise any opportunity that comes out of their collaboration.
Fletcher operates two manufacturing plants while Amaero manufactures in Australia and the United States.
Fletcher’s operations manager Andrew Rower said: “Being able to improve the performance of the process by applying greater flexibility in tooling design, enabled by Amaero’s additive manufacturing process, provides an exciting opportunity for Fletcher Insulation to explore.”
The agreement between the two companies runs for six months.
