3D Metalforge to supply additive manufactured parts to Woodside Energy

3D Metalforge

3D Metalforge, a global additive manufacturing company, has signed an agreement with Woodside Energy to supply additive manufactured parts, production technologies and digital part library development services. 

The two-year agreement, with an optional one + one year extension is for the production of metallic additively manufactured components to be used in Woodside Energy-operated facilities and will support Woodside Energy’s operational supply chain with replacement parts available with relatively short lead times compared to traditional sources.  

The agreement is a non-exclusive outline agreement and will allow the rapid production of parts upon subsequent purchase orders for Woodside Energy to reduce operational risk and local inventory holdings with a more certain cost horizon and increased sustainability.  

“This agreement underscores 3D Metalforge’s commitment to expanding within the Australasian market with a major focus upon the Oil & Gas, Mining and Defence sectors,” 3D Metalforge CEO Matthew Waterhouse said. 

3D Metalforge is currently working with several global companies who face similar challenges to better manage their parts supply chain risks and are addressing that risk by leveraging the benefits of additive manufacturing technologies combined with the expertise of 3D Metalforge as an established international provider of  additive manufacturing capabilities.”
