Sigma Additive Solutions, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, has joined the EOS Developer Network (EDN) by EOS GmbH, headquartered in Krailling, Germany. This move will enable Sigma to provide software and analytics applications from EOS application programming interfaces (APIs).
The EDN partner programme is intended to streamlines services and tools to allow companies such as Sigma to expand its software offering via the EOS digital thread, covering data preparation, machine management, process data acquisition and reporting. EDN also provides access to API documentation, code samples, dedicated support by solution experts and access to virtual EOS systems for testing and integration validation.
“This is a great step in allowing us to support customer quality at every point of their additive journey, as well as better integrate with other software solutions,” stated Stephan Kuehr, General Manager of European Operations, Sigma. “EOS is a premier supplier to the entire Additive Manufacturing industry, including both metals and polymer technologies. We share their mission of providing high levels of manufacturing quality and economic sustainability. We believe that the combination of EOS’ machine platforms with Sigma’s pedigree in agnostic monitoring and analytics software will be a marketplace differentiator and catalyst for growth of the entire additive industry.”
Mirco Schöpf, Product Line Manager Software, EOS, added, “We are very pleased to welcome Sigma Additive Solutions to the EDN partner programme. EOS believes open software interfaces have a strong impact on the adoption of Additive Manufacturing in general and provide opportunities to speed up industrialisation.
