Sigma Labs, Inc., Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, has partnered with IN4.OS to build ‘Smart Factories of the Future’ to meet the demands of high technology sectors including defence, space, aerospace and life sciences. Smart Factories of the Future are an IN4.OS US LLC concept, based on a cyber-physical system and location agnostic factory with the ability to deliver flexible and scalable manufacturing capabilities. Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D® technology will be used in the Additive Manufacturing process, with IN4.OS utilising DMG Mori’s Lasertec line of metal AM machines.

“IN4.OS’s concept of Smart Factories of the Future is a timely and courageous response to increasing the country’s self-sufficiency in times when supply chains are disrupted,” stated Mark K Ruport, Sigma Labs’ President and CEO. “We are excited to work with IN4.OS and DMG Mori, as they take on this important initiative.”

“Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D® is a crucial component of making Additive Manufacturing mainstream for critical manufacturing and delivering qualified products,” added R J Singh, IN4.OS’s CEO. “We look ahead to ushering in a new era of American manufacturing with our strategic partners, Sigma Labs and DMG Mori.”

“We appreciate the opportunity to help enable the Factory of the Future at IN4.OS with Sigma Labs,” added Dr Gregory Hyatt, CTO at DMG Mori ASI. “This triad of innovative companies will offer compelling and differentiated solutions for our domestic manufacturing capability.”
