Research organizations and universities have the need to stay on the cutting-edge of technology and innovation, while attracting top quality research professionals and students. Whether testing new materials and processes, optimizing process parameters, or accelerating industry adoption, researchers strive to achieve results that benefit both the private and public sectors.
Quality is a crucial component of these initiatives and Sigma Additive Solutions provides the deep expertise, systems and data to monitor and analyze the additive manufacturing process in real-time. Sigma was founded in 2010 by high-level scientists from the world-renowned Los Alamos National Labs. This strong research background backs up our company mission statement to be the ‘QA standard for additive manufacturing:
To accomplish this, we collect thermal data on the AM build process, apply data analytics to make the in-situ monitoring data meaningful, and use that data to create a machine learning feedback loop that improves both individual part quality and the entire manufacturing process. In collaboration with our research partners, we then make this data available to our customers, partners, and eventually, everyone in the industry.
Sigma Additive Solutions’ PrintRite3D is an advanced and highly functional machine agnostic solution that integrates with all major 3D metal printers and facilitates applications like:
- Basic and advanced AM research
