Sigma Labs, Inc., a leading developer of quality assurance software for the commercial 3D metal printing industry, has launched its newest product, the PrintRite3D Lite In-Process Quality Assurance system for which it was awarded its first contract from Coherent, Inc., one of the world’s leading providers of lasers and laser-based technology for scientific, commercial, and industrial customers.

The PrintRite3D Lite IPQA system was designed and developed specifically to fulfill the need for melt pool quality monitoring for the small, compact, entry-level machines being used in academia, R&D, dental, and industrial small-lot production.

“Like all companies that serve the additive manufacturing space, our objective is to help our customers improve throughput while reducing costly errors,” said Markus Wolf, R&D Manager at the Coherent site in Dieburg, Germany. “Because of its ease-of-use and ability to validate thermal models in combination with thermal measurement, the new PrintRite3D Lite system from Sigma Labsgives us valuable insights to part design and manufacturing.”

The latest addition to the PrintRite3D suite of products features Sigma’s patented and proven TED (Thermal Energy Density) metric only for use in applications that do not require the full feature PrintRite3D solution. The less complex, smaller footprint, lower price point product provides users of entry level machines the ability to monitor and validate melt pool thermal conditions gaining valuable insights to part design and manufacturing.

“We are very pleased to announce the launch of our new PrintRite3D Lite product as we begin implementation on the Coherent CREATOR metal 3D printer,” said Mark Ruport, President and CEO of Sigma Labs: “PrintRite3D Lite is a great solution for 3D metal printing companies and end-user manufacturers that do not require the full functionality of PrintRite3D and increase our addressable market.  PrintRite3D Lite will be available for OEM licensing as well as third party retrofit installations.”

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
