Sigma Additive launches software module for standardising machine health data logs

November 4, 2022

Sigma Additive Solutions, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, has announced that it is releasing a beta version of its PrintRite Machine Health module. This solution is anticipated to mark the beginning of the company’s software-only approach to quality assurance by allowing users to standardise disparate machine log files.

Building Sigma’s PrintRite3D monitoring and analytics technology, the company is creating a framework for connecting and standardising distinct sensors and images into a cohesive product suite.

Features of HealthRite include:

  • A path to scale for integrated sensor fusion of camera, thermal camera, melt pool data, etc.
  • Ability to link machines by API or upload all machine sensor .csv log files
  • Creation of a common standards-based file format for analytics, visualisation, and reporting
  • A single customisable cohesive environment for all in-process quality data
  • Insight, analytics, and reporting of machine sensor data
  • Dashboard visualisation showing key metrics

“This is an exciting announcement, not only for Sigma, but for the entire additive industry,” stated Jacob Brunsberg, Sigma’s president and Chief Executive Officer. “Today, proprietary quality control approaches of various additive machine manufacturers often lead to inconsistency in quality assurance across manufacturing operations. The objective of the initial module, and all future modules, is to help drive a standards-based approach to Additive Manufacturing , allowing users to gain consistency across their sites and supply chains. Allowing users to take disparate machine log files and standardise them is an important first step in connecting distinct sensors and images into a cohesive product suite.”

Ivan Madera, Chief Executive Officer of Morf3D, added, “A truly holistic approach to quality is just what the industry needs. As a member of the Sigma Additive Product Advisory Council, I am thrilled to have early access to the launch of the Machine Health and future modules, and to put them to work in our facility. Standardising machine logs will streamline processes and advance digital quality workflows. Having a single interface, streaming data from all connected machines, moves the industry forward into a digital future and away from hours of work from manually collecting, converting, processing, and analysing all the individual aspects of quality.”
