Sigma Additive Solutions, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, has entered into an agreement with Dyndrite, headquartered in Seattle, Washington, USA, to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software. By expanding the development of Printrite3D’s visualisation and analysis of Dyndrite’s Additive Developer Kit (ADK), users can have a single user experience for CAM, materials & process development, toolpath creation and the resulting in-process quality data and analytics. This solution is said to mark Sigma’s connection to further cover the full-quality value chain in Additive Manufacturing.
“It’s been long requested by users to have a single environment for the design-to-part qualification stack,” stated Stephan Kuehr, GM of EMEA at Sigma. “This agreement is a key step in empowering the user to marry their in-process quality data to the directly generated toolpaths sent to the machine. This union will enable the user to make quality and toolpath decisions faster, take control of their data, and make it actionable.”
Harshil Goel, CEO of Dyndrite, commented, “Dyndrite enables solution providers to bring performance and robust industrial 3D applications to market. Our application development kit accelerates the creation of critical enterprise solutions such as Sigma’s in-process quality solutions. Our work together is intended to accelerate Additive Manufacturing development and increase production quality.”
Darren Beckett, CTO of Sigma, concluded, “The ability to connect to tool path data only augments the power of sensor fusion. Closing the loop between process development and resulting quality data will accelerate end-user part and process qualification. Our mission has always been to accelerate the adoption of Additive Manufacturing by setting the standard for quality – we are living this through our partnership with Dyndrite.”
Sigma’s integrated Printrite3D powered by Dyndrite is expected to be available in Spring 2023 for early users.
