Sigma Labs, Inc, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, has been selected by DMG Mori, headquartered in Bielefeld, Germany, as the official supplier of In-process Quality Assurance (IPQA) monitoring systems for its DMG MORI Qualified Products (DMQP) programme. This will enable DMG Mori to build all of its LASERTEC Additive Manufacturing machines ‘PrintRite3D Ready’, and offer this integrated solution as a factory option.

This official supplier designation further solidifies an agreement between the two companies in 2020, where DMG Mori selected Sigma Labs as its preferred melt pool monitoring system for its LASERTEC Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machines.

“This continuous invention will lead to increasing sales numbers for the PrintRite3D system. We expect high customer interest in this Melt Pool Monitoring system, as it offers a great possibility to deeply monitor the process quality by the customer,” stated Friedemann Lell, Managing Director at DMG Mori Additive GmbH.

The DMQP programme aims to generate synergies out of machines, peripherals and accessories via combined technological knowledge from partners who have been awarded the premium seal of quality for their products.

“It is an honour to be selected to participate in DMG Mori’s DMQP programme, significantly expanding and deepening our partnership,” stated Mark K Ruport, president and CEO, Sigma Labs. “Manufacturers around the world will now be able to source the integrated solution from DMG Mori directly and be assured that it meets the highest standards of quality and support. This relationship allows Sigma Labs to leverage the vast sales and support capabilities of DMG Mori and expand our global reach.”

Dr Guido Adam, Head of Design, DMG Mori Additive, concluded, “Implementing Sigma Labs’ Melt Pool Monitoring Solution PrintRite3D into the DMQP programme for our LASERTEC SLM machines is an important step in providing best in class industry solutions to our customers. This is an important milestone for our cooperation and the implementation of the PrintRite3D system into our DMQP programme is a strong sign not only for Sigma Labs, but also for our customers – and it will not be the last.”
