In heterogenous environments, the proprietary quality control approaches that various additive machine manufacturers have developed often lead to inconsistency in quality assurance across manufacturing operations. Fragmented quality strategies lead to cost-control issues, increased scrap rates, and missed deadlines for in-house and contract manufacturers alike. Industries like aerospace, defense, medical, and automotive have become frustrated by the AM industry’s complicated, expensive, and time-consuming path to achieve efficient part qualification and standardization.
Sigma’s PrintRite3D Machine Health module marks the beginning of Sigma Additive Solutions software-only approach to quality assurance by allowing users to take disparate machine log files and standardize them. Built upon our robust PrintRite3D monitoring and analytics technology, we are creating a framework for connecting and standardizing distinct sensors and images into a cohesive product suite.
