Sigma Labs announces the launching of its PrintRite3D System

For 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing (AM)

Sigma Labs announced that it will release, later this month, the first module of PrintRite3D – a cutting-edge software and hardware suite of products that enables production of higher quality 3D-printing of metal parts for critical applications in the aerospace, defense, oil and gas, and biomedical markets. We also expect that our PrintRite3D will reduce manufacturing expenses and virtually eliminate costly post-manufacturing inspections. The overall 3D printing (Additive Manufacturing) industry is currently dominated by the making of plastic parts (e.g., 3D Systems Corporation), however the growth of precision-made metal parts is expanding rapidly at a pace of double digit percentages (Wohlers Report 2012).

Mark Cola, the President of Sigma Labs, stated, “it is much more difficult to 3D-print metal parts than plastic parts because they must meet very demanding engineering specifications. PrintRite3D is a suite of quality assurance tools that we expect will enable AM manufacturers to meet the rigorous requirements of metal parts for critical applications, and allow end users to use AM metal parts with confidence. The PrintRite3D suite of software and sensors are designed to guarantee that part quality can be monitored in real time and to report any anomalies during production further enabling lights-out production or minimal worker presence on-site.”
