Sigma Labs, Inc, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, has named Phillips Federal, a Division of Phillips Corporation, as the company’s exclusive reseller to the United States federal government. It was stated that the purpose of the agreement is to deliver an agnostic quality monitoring and analytics solution to standardise qualification across government installations, unify various technologies and accelerate readiness, quality, scale, and supply chain options for the US government.
Mark Ruport, CEO of Sigma Labs, added, “Phillips Federal is a great choice to serve as our reseller partner to the federal government because of their incredible team of experts that offer a wide variety of Additive Manufacturing services to solve the biggest logistic challenges in the DoD [Department of Defense] and other agencies. Phillips Federal mirrors our commitment to improve the quality and production scalability of government Additive Manufacturing initiatives while maintaining a laser focus on client value.”
Sigma intends to install a PrintRite3D® software on an EOS M290 DMLS machine at the Phillips Additive Innovation Center inside the Army Center of Excellence for Advanced Manufacturing at Rock Island Arsenal Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center, Illinois. The Additive Innovation Center is a dedicated space utilised in conjunction with Phillips’ collaborative work with the Department of Defense (DoD) to educate on the capabilities of Additive Manufacturing. Here, the software will be used to demonstrate, train and educate on the benefits of in-process monitoring.
“We are extremely pleased to represent a company of the caliber of Sigma Labs,” stated Joe Harrison, president of Phillips Federal. “Our domain and implementation expertise, combined with the PrintRite3D in-process monitoring and analytics solution, makes for a great combination to improve part qualification and process efficiency in Additive Manufacturing implementations throughout the US government.”
