Sigma Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB), a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D brand, announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application No. 15/276,452, “Optical Manufacturing Process Sensing and Status Indication System.”

The patent application covers a system of sensors configured to measure optical emissions generated by a
scanning heat source during an additive manufacturing process and to analyze the data collected.

John Rice, CEO of Sigma Labs, said, “This patent allowance further enhances the depth and breadth of
the patented intellectual property portfolio covering our PrintRite3D platform. The technology
covered in this patent enables Sigma to provide valuable and relevant quality status information to
customers requiring high-quality AM metal products production. The USPTO has now allowed four
patents pertaining to Sigma Lab’s PrintRite3D platform, representing a wide degree of innovation and
distinguishing us as a leader in this space. Additionally, there are eighteen more patents-pending in

As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
