Sigma Labs, an OTCQB listed provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D brand has received a contract from Solar Turbines Incorporated, a subsidiary of Caterpillar located in San Diego, California. Solar Turbines will implement Sigma Labs’ In-Process Quality Assurance™ (IPQA®) technology for the production of gas turbine components using metal additive manufacturing. The division makes mid-size industrial turbines for use in electric power generation, gas compression, and pumping systems. Sigma Labs will initially install its PrintRite3D software on a 3D Systems’ ProX300 machine, with the potential for multiple system orders as the company ramps up to full serial production.

“We’re excited to work with Solar Turbines and help them expand their use of additive manufacturing, particularly for power generation components,” said Mark Cola, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs. “In addition, 3D Systems is one of the largest OEMs of AM equipment worldwide, and this marks a great opportunity for us to showcase our technology on a new machine as well as new industrial applications.

By demonstrating our PrintRite3D® software to Solar Turbines, we’re expanding Sigma Labs’ customer base and market penetration while continuing to validate our unique capabilities in real world environments. We look forward to working with Solar Turbines as they pursue qualification and production certification for precision metal components using additive manufacturing.”

Solar Turbines is a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc., with approximately 8,500 employees, and is a leading industrial gas turbine OEM. More than 15,300 Solar Turbines units, operating in 100 countries, account for over 2.4 billion hours of operating experience.
