Australian Army ‘s SPEE3D metal 3D printing technology trial a big success

Spee3D army field trial

The Australian Army has completed the first field trial of SPEE3D’s WarpSPEE3D metal 3D printing technology in the Northern Territory.

Across three days at the Mount Bundey field training area earlier this month, the WarpSPEE3D machine was deployed in various bush locations, unloaded on different terrains and consistently operational and able to print parts within 30 minutes.

The relationship between SPEE3D and the Australian Army began in February 2020 with the announcement of a $1.5 million investment in the trial and the start of a 12-month trial.
