Global Leader in Machinery Evaluates Sigma’s 3D Advanced Manufacturing Technology for Next Generation Process Qualification in Two International Markets
SANTA FE, NM – August 13, 2019 – Sigma Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB) (“Sigma Labs” or the “Company”), a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D® brand, has been selected by a major international OEM machine manufacturer to install the company’s proprietary PrintRite3D® products. As part of the agreement, the OEM will complete Sigma’s Rapid Test and Evaluation program and will install the PrintRite3D® in two different countries for analysis and proof-of-performance purposes.
Under the program, Sigma Labs will provide on-site equipment and in-depth technical support teaming with the OEM to demonstrate PrintRite3D®’s capability to boost 3D Metal Additive Manufacturing Machine (“AM) performance to significantly improve and sustain machines’ yield of high quality parts by providing in-process third party, independent quality assurance. The objective of the two RTEs is to prove a business use case on-site that clearly demonstrates the value of PrintRite3D INSPECT® to characterize materials, differing machines, product-specific processes, and provide a logical starting point for Sigma and the OEM to work more closely together in the future.
John Rice, Chairman and CEO of Sigma Labs, said, “Having this opportunity to install two PrintRite3D® Rapid Test and Evaluation units with an OEM that is one of the most respected machine manufacturers in the world, renowned for the precision and quality of its equipment is an important benchmark for Sigma Labs.
“Moreover, this OEM is one of the most renowned brands in the industry and has long been a leading pioneer of in-process machine quality and process controls on a vast number of its high precision manufacturing machines even before the company’s diversification into additive manufacturing, so we believe that our in-process tools are an excellent fit to both the technology and very high quality culture of this great company. We look forward to providing a granular update on our progress after the conclusion of the RTE program in the fourth quarter of 2019,” concluded Rice.
PrintRite3D is an in-process-quality-assurance tool that monitors the laser meltpool in order detect precursors and avert quality discontinuities. The OEM partner is one of the most renowned brands in the industry and has long been a leading pioneer of in-process machine quality and process controls on a vast number of high precision manufacturing machines even before its diversification into additive manufacturing.
