Advanced Manufacturing Alliance

The alliance is a partnership between Charles Darwin University and SPEE3D to develop world-first 3D metal printing technology and drive collaboration between industry partners, trades and academics.

Internationally, 3D printing technology is already impacting the space industry, from satellite manufacturing to the development of spacecraft components.

SPEE3D has developed a method of printing a previously uneconomic top tier material for rocket engine nozzles - a high strength high temperature copper alloy - that is both low cost and highly efficient. In 2021, the Australian Government’s Modern Manufacturing Initiative awarded SPEE3D a $1.5 million grant, with additional financial support from the Territory Government, to commercialise its technology for the national and international market.
