Sigma Labs Inc, a provider of quality assurance software, and Materialise NV, a leading provider of additive manufacturing software and 3D printing solutions, signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate in the integration of the Materialise MCP Controller with Sigma Labs’s PrintRite3D technology. Combining the sophisticated control technology with in-situ process monitoring for metal additive manufacturing will give customers maximal control on the production process, allowing them to become even more productive.
The two companies are partnering to integrate this inspection tool with the Materialise Control Platform (MCP). The MCP is an embedded hardware solution that answers the growing need for broader and more straightforward control over the AM process by giving full control to the end user. The companies have identified the potential to integrate the MCP with Sigma Labs’s PrintRite3D® real-time meltpool analytics anticipating that the result will be a unique integrated product solution for volume manufacturing.
