Sigma Labs announced the first module of its PrintRite3D software and hardware suite that the company says will enable production of higher quality 3D-printing of metal parts for applications in the aerospace, defense, oil and gas, and biomedical markets.
“It is much more difficult to 3D-print metal parts than plastic parts because they must meet very demanding engineering specifications,” said Mark Cola, president of Sigma Labs. “PrintRite3D is a suite of quality assurance tools that we expect will enable AM manufacturers to meet the rigorous requirements of metal parts for critical applications, and allow end users to use AM metal parts with confidence.”
He added: “We are in partnering discussions with a major 3D manufacturer of metal parts and are confident that by the end of 2012 we will enter into an arrangement simultaneously with the roll out of our PrintRite3D suite of products.”
