Sigma Labs, Inc., Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, which provides quality assurance software under the brand PrintRite3D®, reports that it has received a contract from Laser Zentrum Nord (LZN) GmbH, Hamburg, Germany, for the company’s PrintRite 3D INSPECT®. In addition, the two companies have agreed to actively collaborate to certify Sigma’s IPQA® methodology and solutions for AM serial production in the aerospace industry.

The PrintRite3D system will be installed on an SLM Solutions machine located at Laser Zentrum Nord GmbH’s Hamburg facility. John Rice, Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs, stated, “Advancements of 3D metal printing into production have been hampered by the inability to identify, monitor and mitigate defects during the printing process.”

“We’re excited to work with Laser Zentrum Nord GmbH on the in-process dynamic behaviours that cause defects and to demonstrate and document how our PrintRite3D IPQA software addresses and solve these problems,” he continued. “This contract further validates Sigma Labs’ position as a leader in third party, platform independent quality assurance for the metal Additive Manufacturing industry.”
