Sigma Labs, a developer of in-process, real-time quality inspection systems for 3D metal printing announced it has signed a Technology Cooperation Agreement with Materialise NV of Leuven Belgium, to integrate its PrintRite3D quality inspection technology with Materialise's additive manufacturing software.

"we believe that we will reach the broader additive manufacturing market sooner and be able to assist a larger number of AM users with achieving their in-process inspection needs more quickly." said Mark Cola, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs, Inc.

PrintRite3D is Sigma Labs' patented and proprietary product that quickly assesses the quality of a part during the production process using 3D printing, by using real-time data as opposed to waiting for costly post-process inspection. The PrintRite3D technology has seen much approval and interest from defense organizations and large aerospace companies, since it eliminates the current problem in 3D printing of high inspection costs for critical 3D printed metal parts.

"A software package for additive manufacturing which incorporates our PrintRite3D in-process inspection technology enables users to more quickly achieve rapid qualification with greater process reliability without having to wait until the end of the manufacturing process. This would save users money by eliminating expensive post-process inspection technologies." Cola explained.
