Sigma Labs, a leading developer of quality assurance software to the commercial 3D printing industry, has made known that its PrintRite3D in-process quality assurance solution will be certified to work with Aconity3D’s line of 3D metal printers and available as a standard option via Aconity3D’s online configurator. Aconity3D will designate their printers as ‘PrintRite3D Ready’. As an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Aconity3D will sell, install and support PrintRite3D as an integrated solution to its customers.
“I am very pleased to announce our partnership with Aconity3D. Aconity3D’s customized and modular additive manufacturing systems are an ideal use case for PrintRite3D,” said Mark Ruport, President and CEO of Sigma Labs. “We believe their unique approach to building systems in a wide variety of possible machine configurations to meet end users’ specific needs combined with our in-process quality assurance solution will help enable industrial manufacturing at large scale and compatible costs. We believe our collaboration will accelerate the adoption of 3D metal printing and facilitate companies moving into production more quickly and efficiently.”
Aconity3D is a machine manufacturer for laser-based 3D printing of metals, with a focus on the buildup of customer-specific systems for Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF), in which metal particles are fused layer upon layer by a laser. The Aconity System Framework allows full customization of each machine for customers’ specific applications. Aconity3D’s customers and partners include leading industrial, aviation, and automotive companies, and world-renowned institutes and universities at the forefront of the additive manufacturing (AM) landscape.
Dr. Yves Hagedorn, CEO of Aconity3D added, “We are delighted about this partnership. We believe Sigma Lab’s and Aconity3D’s joint endeavor to achieve steadily increasing part quality will be a main enabling factor for further industrial applications of 3D metal printing, as well as the ability to create fascinating applications.”
