Sigma Labs to Sponsor Leading ASME Event with Focus on Improving Additive Manufacturing Quality and Economics

Sigma Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB) (“Sigma Labs” or the “Company”), a leading developer of quality assurance software for the commercial 3D metal printing industry, today announced that it is a sponsor of the AM Industry Summit, to be held virtually on March 3-4, 2021. This year’s event, powered by ASME (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers), brings together the aerospace and energy industries with leading solution providers to share knowledge, connect with experts, and find ideas to accelerate their use of additive manufacturing.

The AM Industry Summit connects engineering, manufacturing, product design and technology professionals across multiple industries resulting in meaningful connections, inspirational learning opportunities, and access to the latest developments in technology and innovation. Over 60 industry experts will present, and the event is anticipated to attract 30-plus solution provider sponsors and over 1000 attendees.

Darren Beckett, CTO of Sigma Labs, will present an information session 3:45 p.m. eastern time on March 3, titled Boosting Additive Manufacturing Quality, Economics and Efficiency with Monitoring and Alerts. Beckett’s session will discuss the benefits of adopting melt pool monitoring technology that provides a clear view of in-process anomalies, as well as the diagnostic and alert tools to not only improve part performance metrics but also the efficiency and return on investment of the entire additive manufacturing process. Beckett will also share a review of an economics model for monitoring & diagnosis with realization of solid cumulative return on investment.

Mark Ruport, CEO of Sigma Labs, stated, “We are very pleased to support the industry by sponsoring and speaking at the AM Industry Summit. It is another sign of our commitment to “radical collaboration” with all parts of the AM industry, in order to foster more rapid acceleration of this vital technology. It is gratifying to see ASME focus on Aerospace and Energy because they are two of the most important industry sectors.”
