AM quality assurance software developer Sigma Labs has made its second announcement of the week: it has deepened an existing collaboration with Materialise. Building on a memorandum of understanding, the companies will cooperate to integrate Materialise’ MCP Controller with Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D software. As part of the new agreement, the partners have entered into a binding joint sales agreement to begin beta customer commercialization of the integrated product.

“Growing our partnership with Materialise is a significant milestone for Sigma Labs as we expand our footprint in the market and add momentum to our quest to broaden industry access to our groundbreaking PrintRite3D software,” commented Mark K. Ruport, Sigma Labs’ executive chairman. “The alignment is a natural step for both companies, as Materialise has a strong presence in the additive manufacturing market and a reputation for quality products. Commercializing and jointly selling this integrated solution will benefit both companies as well as advance the forward momentum of innovation in the 3D manufacturing industry.”

Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D software platform helps metal additive manufacturing users to ensure that the AM process is up to standard by measuring real-time melt pool analytics. The software detects inconsistencies in thermal signatures and alerts manufacturers, enabling them to correct or cease production if a part has failed.

Materialise’s MCP is an embedded hardware and software solution that was built to offer users broader, more streamlined control over the additive manufacturing process. By integrating both Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D and Materialise’ solution, the companies say they are positioned to “offer a unique product solution for retrofit of existing machines, OEM machine integration and closed loop control.”

Earlier this week, Sigma Labs announced that it awarded a contract with Mississippi State University’s Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS). The center, a leading interdisciplinary research hub focused on driving innovation in U.S. mobility industries, will integrate Sigma’s PrintRite3D software into its R&D.
