AML3D has received an Additive Manufacturing Facility accreditation with wire feedstock from DNV, the Marine & Industrial Classification Society. The accreditation encompasses an “Approval of Manufacturer” (AoM) certificate and demonstrates AML3D’s WAM® technology meets the enhanced ‘Class certification’ standards for Integrity and Quality that are applied to critical components in the Oil & Gas and Marine industry.
AML3D is the first wire feedstock-based Additive Manufacturing company to achieve this accreditation: Approval to produce Class certified components made of “Steel for hull structure and equipment; Copper alloys for valves, fittings and general applications as per DNV’s rules”, which operate in extreme load, pressure or corrosive environments. This provides a significant competitive advantage to AML3D as, currently, the only wire-feed additive manufacturer accredited to supply these high-value parts to DNV’s global customer base.
AML3D’s DNV accreditation follows the recent announcement of the implementation of the AS9100D:2016 Standard for aerospace components and AML3D’s previous wire-arc additive manufacturing facility certification by Lloyd’s Register. AML3D estimates that, in combination, the DNV and Lloyd’s Register’s customer base give the company access to close to two-thirds of the global market for high-value, class-certified marine components.
The DNV Accreditation closely aligns with AML3D’s growth strategy to increase sales of existing products, access new markets and sales and expand their potential customer base. It also aligns with AML3D’s strategy to focus on enhancing the quality of its products and service to enhance customer satisfaction.

The development of AML3D’s commercial relationship with Boeing, for example, is aligned with the Company’s multiphase growth strategy to develop additional and geographically diverse markets across Aerospace, Space and Defence to drive value creation over the medium term. As a leading global aerospace company, Boeing develops, manufactures and services commercial aeroplanes, defence products and space systems for customers in more than 150 countries.
