Sigma Labs, Inc., a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D® brand, has joined the Additive Alliance of Fraunhofer IAPT, a global research consortium established to advance the development and implementation of Additive Manufacturing. As the first US company to be granted membership in the network, Sigma Labs will have the opportunity to demonstrate its technology to key players in the market.

“Being a member of the Additive Alliance of Fraunhofer IAPT is another meaningful milestone for Sigma Labs. Working together with the Alliance and its members who encompass leading companies, OEMs, service providers and machine manufacturers, we look forward to helping build the future of additive manufacturing,” stated John Rice, CEO of Sigma Labs. “We strongly believe that our PrintRite3D technology will play a major role in quality assurance of AM.”

“We are happy to welcome Sigma Labs as a new member of our Additive Alliance and to strengthen the competences of the network in the field of quality assurance in AM. In-Process quality assurance will be a key enabler for industrialisation of AM,” added Antje Vosshenrich, head of the Additive Alliance at Fraunhofer IAPT.

The Additive Alliance of Fraunhofer IAPT is said to be the first industry and research network of its kind for Additive Manufacturing. Established in 2014, it promotes the exchange of knowledge across the entire AM process chain and today lists over thirty members.
