Charles Darwin University has partnered with SPEE3D to form the Advanced Manufacturing Alliance, a joint initiative to utilise a world-first 3D metal printing technology.

Through collaboration, the Alliance will aim to engage with industry partners, trades and academics to:

  • develop real-world applications
  • create industry procedures and standards
  • drive material development.

Industry collaboration

SPEE3D’s technology can help you to develop products from concept through to mass production for application in industries such as oil and gas, mining, remote manufacturing and automotive.

Partner with trades

The Advanced Manufacturing Alliance has a solid partnership with CDU Vocational Education and Training (VET) which provides a strong link to trades. Projects with VET include:

  • development of a basic training program outline to operate the new technology,
  • produce and validate manufacturing procedures and standards for the technology in partnership with higher education.

Academic research

We are looking to work with academic partners to conduct leading-edge research to unlock the full potential of this innovative technology.
