Sigma Labs Inc., a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D® brand, was named a member of the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) located at Ansty Park, Coventry, UK. Membership of the MTC enables Sigma Labs to share and provide expertise and solutions for a number of the Centre’s projects and also network with the Centre’s existing members, including some of the UK’s leading aerospace companies.
The MTC provides integrated manufacturing system solutions for customers across sectors that include automotive, aerospace, rail, construction/civil engineering, oil & gas and defense.
Sigma Labs will install its PrintRite3D® INSPECT® In-Process Quality Monitoring and Control technology at the MTC’s National Centre for Additive Manufacturing and participate in various member-sponsored programs with a focus on qualification and certification of the additive manufacturing process.
PrintRite3D® INSPECT®, which comprises software for in-process inspection of metallurgical properties, uses sensor data and establishes in-process metrics for each product’s design specifications and metal. INSPECT® also generates quality reports based on rigorous statistical analysis of manufacturing process data and allows for interrogation of suspect part data that can be used for process improvement and optimization.
