Sigma Labs Wins Test and Evaluation Program Contract to Accelerate Adoption of In-Process Quality Assurance (IPQA®) for Additive Manufacturing Serial Production
Fifth New Customer to Initiate Test and Evaluation Program in Past Four Months
SANTA FE, N.M., Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sigma Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB) (“Sigma Labs” or the “Company”), a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D® brand, has been awarded a Test and Evaluation Program contract with a leading global materials and service provider in additive manufacturing (AM). The program is designed to demonstrate the value of Sigma’s PrintRite3D® product capabilities and performance and to validate and quantify the repeatability and variability of AM production processes. Sigma Labs is installing multiple PrintRite3D INSPECT 4.0 in-process quality assurance systems located in the customer’s German and United States facilities under the Sigma Rapid Test and Evaluation Program. In support of this program, Sigma Labs will provide hardware, software, training, engineering and metallurgical consulting and support services. This contract marks Sigma’s fifth customer since September 2018—including additive manufacturing providers, oil and gas services and aerospace industry clients—that is conducting various forms of testing and evaluating its technology.
John Rice, CEO of Sigma Labs, said, “Sigma Labs is deeply committed to our In-Process Quality Assurance tools, supporting and moving forward with them. I am confident that this initiative, which marks our fifth customer signed from diverse industries in the past four months, will validate our PrintRite3D technology in commercial-industrial serial manufacturing settings. We believe that going forward, AM technology will play an increasingly prominent role in the aerospace, medical, power generation/energy, automotive and tooling/general industries, all areas which are served by this customer.”
Sigma Labs engineers will work collaboratively in both US and German locations to validate the use of PrintRite3D INSPECT 4.0 to improve manufacturing process consistency within the customer’s AM operations. Specific qualification builds of representative geometries will be prepared in each location to assess and quantify machine consistency and variability as well as material process and parameter development.
