Sigma Labs (NASDAQ: SGLB), a leading developer of in-process, quality-assurance software for the commercial 3D-printing industry, has announced a new partnership with Northwestern University designed to develop its PrintRite3D(TM) In-Process Quality Assurance technology across an array of 3D printing processes. Sigma will work closely with its Northwestern University partner to expand the proprietary quality assurance technology and evaluate an application to powder-blow Directed Energy Deposition (“DED”) additive processes. Northwestern University acquired the first PrintRite3D DED system, and Sigma Labs developed the hardware and software for the system. The agreement calls for the installation of the beta system onto the customized open-architecture DED system, named Additive Rapid Prototyping Instrument (“ARPI”) system located at Northwestern’s Advanced Manufacturing Processes Laboratory (“AMPL”). Sigma Labs plans to seek additional commercial DED machine OEM partners to expand the beta testing program. DED has been applied in a variety of industries, including aerospace, oil and gas, defense, marine and architecture.” OEM’s have seen an increase in demand of the directed energy deposition machine ranging from high-level R&D projects to the production of prototype and production parts, many of which are for the aerospace industry,” said Sigma Labs CEO Mark Ruport in the press release. “This initiative expands our market opportunity and is the first step in Sigma’s strategy to apply our technology across a broad array of Additive Manufacturing processes.”
