Summer is on the horizon and things were definitely heating up at RAPID + TCT!…
March 2023 AM Trends Newsletter
2023 is off to a great start here at Sigma Additive Solutions, and we hope it’s going just as well for you. As you know, the additive manufacturing industry is always growing and changing, so here’s an update about some of our most recent happenings.
New Partnership with DyeMansion
Back in November, in addition to having Novanta and Dyndrite in our booth at Formnext for major product synergy announcements, we were also on display in SLM’s newly launched Software Partner Ecosystem. With an expanding software ecosystem, we left Formnext with high confidence in Sigma’s forward path.
As part of that forward movement, we’re excited to announce a new partnership and expansion into post-process QA. We are integrating with DyeMansion, the global leader in connected & integrated post-processing solutions for industrial polymer 3D-printing. As part of DyeMansion’s Workflow Center, our integrated hardware/software solution option offers extra quality assurance for DyeMansion’s post-processing solutions for its DM60, Powershot Performance and Powerfuse S.

Unlocking the Power of 3rd Party Monitoring
Our focus has been on making our solutions as versatile and accessible as possible, allowing you to make the most out of your existing setup without having to rely on additional hardware.
PrintRite3D®: Machine Health standardizes the format for log files from various OEMs, making it easy for you to monitor the health and performance of your additive manufacturing machines regardless of make or model. Our statistical analytics and reporting features give you an early warning of potential issues and let you communicate your results with ease. Additionally, we’re pleased to announce that our Part Health product now utilizes API calls to pull melt pool data from other systems to perform Sigma analytics. We’re actively pulling data from EOS and SLM, among other OEMs, and we’re confident this will be a valuable tool for those looking to optimize their additive manufacturing process.
Understanding variance in a controlled process is critical to maintaining consistent quality. PrintRite3D users monitor key parameters and identify variations outside of acceptance criteria. If you have a monitoring system in place but find the analytics lacking, Sigma’s analytics can now be used without hardware integration, making it a cost-effective solution for those looking to improve their quality control measures.

New Patents for Innovative QA Solutions
As Sigma continues to develop and release innovative quality assurance solutions, we are also pleased to highlight the growth of the Company’s patent portfolio. As of February 24, 2023, the total number of granted patents has increased to 29 with an additional 40 patent applications in-process. Recently, Sigma received several foundational patent grants from some of its earliest filed patent families that cover sensor-based machine learning and sensor fusion in both on- and off-axis configurations.

Coming Soon to AMUG
We’ll be attending AMUG March 19-23, as well as hosting a booth (4651) at Rapid + TCT May 2-4. We hope to see you at either…or both! At AMUG we’ll be previewing our soon-to-be released Process Health Module – a powerful monitoring solution for identifying defects in powder beds via visual and thermal cameras. We are taking pre-orders and beta partner plans now, so feel free to stop by and learn more. We’ll also be scheduling meetings to give you a 1:1 introduction to our new module at both events. Contact us here.
Together with our partner Materialise we are hosting Read Between the Layers: Improve Build Quality with Effective Process QC. Please come visit us at AMUG, room 5C, 5th Floor, Hilton Chicago Hotel at 10:30am on March 21st to learn how we integrate with Materialise’s products.
