Sigma Labs receives contract from Ermaksan Innovative Technologies for PrintRite3D

April 9, 2021

Sigma Labs, Inc., Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, has been selected by Ermaksan Innovative Technologies, Bursa, Turkey, to provide its PrintRite3D® in-process quality assurance technology as a factory option on its ENAVISION metal Additive Manufacturing machines. The program will be integrated with the Materialise Control Platform (MCP).

The partnership commences with an initial contract for a single system from Ermaksan to install PrintRite3D at a new Turkish customer site. To begin with, Sigma Labs will install its system at the Ermaksan’s facility in Bursa in order to certify ENAVISION as ‘PrintRite3D Ready’, before moving the system to the end-user’s facility. Sigma will also provide a comprehensive PrintRite3D In-Process Quality Assurance (IPQA®) system and hardware, software, training, engineering and metallurgical consulting and related support services.

“We are pleased to announce our new relationship with Ermaksan, a leading provider of advanced metal forming machines,” stated Mark Ruport, CEO of Sigma Labs. “We believe the integration and certification of PrintRite3D at Ermaksan’s factory will help ensure the best solution for their end-user customer. Ermaksan’s commitment to the highest quality standards was one of the key reasons for selecting PrintRite3D, and we look forward to establishing a long-term relationship and collaborating with them on future sales opportunities.”

Ahmet Ozkayan, General Manager at Ermaksan, commented, “We are very happy to start a collaboration with Sigma Labs. The collaboration aims to increase the exchange of ideas and expertise between both companies. At Ermaksan, we attach great importance to research and development and innovation activities with the aim of improving the capabilities of the machines we produce, meeting global market demands in the best way, and increasing customer satisfaction. In the coming years, we will continue our technology-oriented investment studies that will add value to the sector.”

Sigma’s PrintRite3D Ready initiative was launched in 2020 with the intention of allowing global manufacturers to be confident in monitoring the quality of additively manufactured metal parts, regardless of which AM machine they are using. Sigma hopes that this certification will facilitate the acceleration of metal AM, by enabling the manufacturer to be agile and load balance production across a heterogeneous collection of machines whilst ensuring that the part’s quality meets design requirements.
