Sigma Labs, developer of advanced, in process, non-destructive quality inspection systems for metal-based AM and other advanced manufacturing technologies, has entered into an evaluation period for the Company’s proprietary PrintRite3D® products with Additive Industries of The Netherlands.
Additive Industries is developing next-generation metal AM machines for high-end industrial applications. The company has developed and tested a prototype machine, MetalFAB1, to the point where it begins to evaluate Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D® technology prior to the product launch in the fourth quarter of this year.
Additive Industries, as part of the agreement, purchased a non-exclusive license to use one of Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D® systems including licensing of its INSPECT™, DEFORM™ and ANALYTICS™ software, for integrating into the MetalFAB1 for evaluation purposes.
The two companies have already signed a Technology Cooperation Agreement in December, 2014 to evaluate Sigma Labs’ technology for Additive Industries’ system development.
Mark Cola, President and CEO of Sigma Labs says that the PrintRite3D® technology being recognized by the users of metal AM machines and their OEMs that makes them is a significant achievement. Sigma Labs will join with Additive Industries in their product launch later this year.
According to Daan Kersten, Co-founder & CEO of Additive Industries b.v., this evaluation period is the next logical step in the co-development project between Sigma Labs and Additive Industries, and also a natural bridge in their joint efforts to improve the reliability and consistency of metal AM machines.
