Mississippi State University CAVS integrates Sigma Labs PrintRite3D software

Sigma Labs, Inc., an expert in quality assurance software for additive manufacturing, announced it has been awarded a contract by Mississippi State University’s Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS). The center, a leading interdisciplinary research hub focused on driving innovation in U.S. mobility industries, will integrate Sigma’s PrintRite3D software with a Renishaw AM400 3D printer.

According to the contract signed between CAVS and Sigma Labs, not only will CAVS use the software for research and commercial applications, it will also act as a test bed for new product improvements that Sigma develops for the PrintRite3D platform.

Mark K. Ruport, Executive Chairman of Sigma Labs, said of the partnership: “The Research & Development and University sectors of the additive manufacturing (AM) market is important to Sigma as we expand our footprint in the retail market segment with another contract win with the Mississippi State University Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems, a leading research institution and thought leader.

“They have agreed to act as a test bed for new product improvements to PrintRite3D, uniquely allowing us a real-world feedback loop to continuously improve our technology suite. I look forward to working with the entire team at CAVS to bring a new level of quality assurance to both their partners and the additive manufacturing industry as a whole.”

Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D platform serves the metal AM sector, providing quality assurance capabilities, including real-time melt pool analytics. By measuring thermal signatures of the 3D printing process, the quality of each part can be determined, and any inconsistencies in the process are detected in real-time, allowing operators to correct or stop production if a part is compromised. Ultimately, PrintRite3D helps AM users to minimize error rates and achieve higher yields using their metal additive technology of choice.

The U.S.-based software developer has a number of high-profile partnerships in the AM industry, including aerospace giant Airbus and the UK’s Manufacturing Technology Center, for which it provides its quality assurance expertise.
