A3D has secured a Defence Printing Purchase Order to produce additively manufactured metal components.

The Purchase Order will be to supply experimental metal alloy 3D printed parts and will be produced at A3D’s industrial print services at its Canning Vale, WA headquarters.

A3D described the contract win as a first step with the project entailing “specialist  requirements which are well matched to our deep knowledge of materials and the metal printing process for laser powder bed fusion (LPBF).”

CEO Rebekah Letheby elaborated: “I am thrilled to receive a purchase order direct from Australian Defence to Aurora Labs for 3D printed parts. Our focus to move to providing products, parts and services which are designed and tailored for specific applications that are tailored to custom requirements, particularly printed components that need to fit with standards of aerospace or Defence are now becoming fertile areas where the company can expand.”

The purchase order is valued at $49,400 and is regarded by A3D as an entry point into a larger market which has been the company’s business development focus over the last 18 months.

A3D was trading up 1.5% to 7.6 cents.
