By CIOReview | Tuesday, February 23, 2016

SANTA FE, N.M: Sigma Labs, a developer of advanced, in process, non-destructive quality-inspection systems, recently announced that it has entered into a technology development agreement with 3DSIM to pursue commercial metal AM software opportunities for rapid qualification and part certification, based on a report by Sigma Labs.

Sigma Labs is pioneering the commercialization of in-process metallurgical and geometric quality assurance monitoring technology where as the 3DSIM is a software company that provides products and services initially focused on the simulation of Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes. Recently Sigma Labs decision has come to light as “We believe our solutions are complementary and ultimately serve to enable the ability to fully certify AM-manufactured parts and thus reliably print them on demand. We will provide an overview of this collaboration at the AMC Winter Meeting of the EWI, to be held February 10-11 at 3DSIM’s offices in Park City. We continue to expand our presence and are setting the stage for higher growth going forward, as our customers gain confidence in our In-Process Quality Assurance™ (IPQA®) approach to guaranteeing quality on any AM part produced”, says Mark Cola, President and CEO of Sigma Labs.

3DSIM is also keen on working with Sigma Labs in order to develop software tools for the metal powder bed fusion AM. Bringing 3DSIM’s modeling capabilities together with Sigma Labs IPQA technology will help in overcoming the hurdle to wide-scale adoption of additive manufacturing
