This Cogitic order continues to demonstrate the ongoing success of AML3D’s US scale-up strategy, which includes embedding ARCEMY® systems within the suppliers to the US Navy. The US is the largest Additive Manufacturing market in the world and AML3D’s most important growth market. The Company remains confident additional contracts in support of the US defense sector will be executed during the current financial year. AML3D CEO Sean Ebert said:
This purchase contract with Cogitic Corporation is further evidence of the ever-increasing demand for AML3D’s technology within the US Navy submarine industrial base supply chain.

As a longstanding supplier to the US defense industry, Cogitic has a reputation for combining innovative engineering with advanced technology to solve manufacturing problems, which makes ARCEMY System an attractive technology to enhance their manufacturing capability.

It is encouraging to see the momentum within AML3D’s US Scale up strategy continuing to accelerate and to see the commercial benefits as a result. We will remain alert to opportunities to maximize this commercial advantage, such as purchase and/or lease agreements, and the rapid deployment of our ARCEMY systems.

AML3D is committed to providing the US Defence sector with point of need advanced manufacturing solutions and to developing and deepening our long-term, strategic partnership with key stakeholders within the US Navy’s submarine program and supply chain. Our US scale up strategy also includes meeting the advanced manufacturing and metal 3D printing needs of global Tier 1 Oil and Gas and Aerospace companies. Our newly established relationship with Cogitic is built around supporting the US Navy’s submarine industrial base but Cogitic is also a key supplier to other industries, which may present opportunities to access these markets in the future.
