Sigma Labs and Additive Industries Announce MetalFAB1 Industrial 3D Printer Certified as PrintRite3D Ready
OEM Agreement Advances Partnership Providing In-Process Melt-Pool Monitoring on Quad Laser Systems
SANTA FE, NM / ACCESSWIRE / September 10, 2020 / Sigma Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ:SGLB) ("Sigma Labs"), a leading developer of in-process quality assurance software for the additive manufacturing industry, has extended its current relationship with Additive Industries, a 3D metal printing equipment manufacturer to OEM its PrintRite3D® Quality Assurance and Monitoring system and the two companies have completed the certification process designating MetalFAB1 printers are now PrintRite3D® Ready.
Developing what is thought to be the first near real-time visualization of the build thermal history for a quad laser 3D metal printer required radical collaboration and innovation between the two companies' engineering teams. The benefits to end users include reduced post-processing costs, less material waste, and faster part qualification. The companies will begin selling PrintRite3D® to new and existing users of MetalFAB1 3D printers.
"Our engineering teams have truly accomplished a remarkable milestone in 3D metal printing by designing and building a high performance computer platform that processes sensor data and produces a near real time visualization for a quad laser printer," said Mark K. Ruport, CEO of Sigma Labs. "We are very pleased to be working with an industry leader such as Additive Industries to accelerate the industrialization of 3D metal printing. The MetalFAB1 is a remarkable printer and it's a privilege to have it certified as PrintRite3D Ready."
"The integration of the PrintRite3D Melt-Pool Monitoring solution in our MetalFAB1 is an important addition to our product portfolio. The PrintRite3D solution matches very well with our focus on quality and reproducibility, allowing our customers to benefit from reduced post-processing cost, and faster part qualification," said Mark Vaes, CEO and CTO of Additive Industries. "We are very pleased with the strong partnership with Sigma Labs, and are proud to be working with their industry leading PrintRite3D solution."
