New Version of Sigma Labs’ In-Process Quality Control SoftwareFebruary 7, 2022
At Formnext…Sigma Labs demonstrated version 7.0 of its PrintRite3D software, which provides in-process monitoring for quality assurance. It also showcased the software at the booths DMG Mori and Additive Industries, which provide the software in their printing platforms. Sigma Labs has announced a number of such partnerships, most recently with Materialise via the combination of the Materialise Control Platform and Sigma Labs' PrintRite3D sensor technology. This open platform allows users to identify and correct metal build issues in real time. This improves metal-AM productivity and reduces scrap rates, paving the way for manufacturers to advance their operations and implement metal AM in serial production, according to Sigma Labs officials.
In addition to the platform, Materialise and Sigma Labs will collaborate with end users and machine producers to refine processes for their unique applications. Version 7.0 of PrintRite3D includes new features such as temperature monitoring and calibration, neural net machine learning, recoater interaction detection, user-facing machine-learning predictive models, multiple-laser quality metrics, and 3D-visualization diagnostics.
