Our New OEM Network Partner
We are thrilled to welcome amace solutions to our OEM partner network. As Sigma CEO Jacob Brunsberg, stated, “Coming out of the largest machine tool conglomerate in India, amace is a quality addition to the Sigma OEM network family. We have a great deal of respect for their approach to technology and additive production. Most important, the team at amace shares our passion to improve machine, process and part health, while enabling cost-effective, high-volume production.
The fact that amace utilizes the Materialise Control Platform (MCP) is also a plus given our recent announcement that we are working with Materialise to allow users to identify and correct metal build issues in real-time via a closed-loop control process.”
