Sigma Labs just announced it is now a member of the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC). The provider of software solutions under the PrintRite3D® brand will work in a number of the Centre’s projects and benefits from its existing network.
The Coventry-based centre is supported by the UK government whose strategy is to bridge the gap between academic discoveries and real-time industry innovation. The UK government is part of the governments that supports the most companies in the industrialization of AM. The MTC for instance, houses the latest generation of advanced manufacturing equipment. PrintRite3D® INSPECT® will complete these tools and help the center to continue to provide its solutions in the industry.
PrintRite3D® INSPECT®, the new entrant at MTC
The MTC supplies customers across sectors that include automotive, aerospace, rail, construction/civil engineering, oil & gas and defense.
The software of Sigma Labs will enable In-Process Quality Monitoring and Control technology. It will also be used in various sponsorships programs and allows for the qualification and certification of the additive manufacturing process.
According to the company, PrintRite3D® INSPECT® comprises software for in-process inspection of metallurgical properties. It requires the use of sensor data and establishes in-process metrics for each product’s design specifications and metal.
“It provides manufacturing engineers with information in real time that can permit them to avert a part that is beginning to display discontinuities from going on to become a rejected part. INSPECT® also generates quality reports based on rigorous statistical analysis of manufacturing process data and allows for interrogation of suspect part data that can be used for process improvement and optimization.”
