Rowlands Metalworks purchases Arcemy® module
  • Rowlands Metalworks have purchased an Arcemy® module to enhance manufacturing capabilities
  • Rowlands is a defence supplier and South Australian fabricator
  • Arcemy® module to provide Rowlands with robotic automation for Additive joining and manufacturing, improving their capabilities to service defence and agricultural clients
  • Sale provides AML3D with critical, local validation
  • The integration of Arcemy® modules into Australia’s manufacturing sector presents an enormous opportunity

AML3D Limited (ASX: AL3) (“AML3D” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the sale of an Arcemy® module to Rowlands Metalworks (“RLDS”).  

RLDS is a dynamic sheet metal company based in South Australia. Equipped with modern purpose-built production facilities, RLDS services defence, marine, agricultural and automotive industries.

RLDS recognised the advanced capabilities of AML3D’s Arcemy® module and its underlying Wire Arc Manufacturing (“WAM®”) technology. The Arcemy® module has the potential to transform RLDS’s service offering, positioning them at the forefront of the industry 4.0 innovation. The production efficiencies of an Arcemy® module will provide RLDS with a clear advantage in a highly competitive industry.    

The initial application by RLDS for the Arcemy® module will be to additively join sheet metal structures and manufacture bespoke components for customers. Additionally, RLDS foresees that the versatility of the module will be of great benefit to their defence clients (marine programs) as well as other international additive manufacturing opportunities and complements their industrial design, finishing and assembly services.

The purchase order to supply, install and commission a bespoke Arcemy® module tailored for “RLDS” manufacturing applications is valued at approximately $400,000. Once commissioned, AML3D will receive an ongoing licence and service fee. 

The sale of the Company’s second Arcemy® module is a significant milestone for AML3D. RLDS will provide critical third-party validation and act as an invaluable case study on how an Arcemy® unit can transform a subtractive manufacturing and fabrication service offering.

Going forward, the opportunity to integrate AML3D’s technology into similar businesses across Australia is enormous. AML3D is excited with the opportunity to support local companies in their transition towards Additive and Advanced Manufacturing, assisting in the ongoing restoration of Australia’s manufacturing sector.

Mr Cameron Johnston, Rowlands Metalwork’s Managing Director commented:

“Rowlands Metalworks aims to be a world leading sheet metal company, delivering excellence to clients globally. We’re excited to partner with AML3D, a local South Australian company that has developed a leading technology which can position us at the forefront of innovation to achieve our goals.”  

Mr Andrew Sales, AML3D’s Managing Director commented:

“We are pleased to work with Rowlands Metalworks and supply an Arcemy® module for improving their manufacturing capabilities in their pursuit to move into Advanced Manufacturing. Arcemy® gives our customer the flexibility to not only develop and automate their processes but also improve manufacturing efficiencies through automation, 3D metal printing and additive joining.”
