AML3D (AL3) has signed on for a series of collaborative feasibility projects with Deakin University.

The collaboration will see the two parties explore the incorporation of Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) technology to revolutionise AML3D’s Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM) tech.

Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) are considered the world’s strongest fibre, which the company says has the capacity to greatly enhance the properties of WAM deposited alloys.

Two new feasibility studies have been confirmed and are ready to kick off immediately. These will explore two new techniques for incorporating BNNTs into aluminium in the context of WAM, with the aim to fast-track commercialisation.

The addition of BNNTs to aluminium and other metals is thought to be able to create much stronger, lighter, and more thermally and radiation resistant alloys.

This is hoped to expand the range of applications of AML3D’s patented WAM technology in the key industry sectors of space, aerospace, marine, defence and transport.

“The recent success of our current and ongoing high strength alloy developments for our patented WAM process, has identified a further significant commercial opportunity for AML3D by incorporating BNNT into our wire feedstock,” Managing Director Andrew Sales said.

“I’m extremely encouraged by this new development and hence why we are commencing another two projects separately to our current program.”

AML3D said it hopes the new project will be a step towards widespread commercial adoption of the material.

AML3D was up 6.25 per cent, trading at 17 cents per share at 3:20 pm AEDT.
