In heterogenous environments, proprietary quality control approaches of additive machine manufacturers often create 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. 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.
Our team at Sigma Additive Solutions has spent more than a decade creating and refining the technology to provide a framework for standards-based data exchange, metrics, analytics, and a home for standards-based qualification.
The launching of Machine Health and additional software-only modules for Machine and Process Health marks our software only approach to quality assurance by allowing users distinct sensors and images into a cohesive product suite. This act of sensor fusion – conjoining data types –provides improved confidence in defect detection, root cause analysis and mitigation – allowing everyone to interpret control charts and other data types/sources uniformly.
A core pillar to our mission is our are commitment to an open architecture philosophy. in which we fulfill the duty of a 3rd party agnostic option connectable to the broad install base of the additive industry.
