Network of key stakeholders Additive Manufacturing: Sigma Additive Solutions forms in-situ network to accelerate innovation
The developer of in-situ quality assurance solutions for additive manufacturing, Sigma Additive Solutions, has formalised its program of working with universities, research labs, government organizations, and industrial companies to provide a platform for improving collaboration related to in-situ monitoring and real-time analysis for quality assurance, certification, and qualification of additively manufactured parts.
The goal of the Acgovdustrial Network launched by Sigma Additive Solutions is to grant easy and inexpensive access to its in-situ monitoring and analysis platform for educational institutions and R&D labs around the world while building a network of key stakeholders from government and industry to provide funding, commission projects, commercialize innovative technologies, and ultimately propel metal AM into production.
Under this program, members will receive substantial discounts on Sigma's Printrite3D technology, direct access to Sigma's engineering resources, collaboration on government funded projects and programs, input to product features and requirements, early access to Sigma's Alpha and Beta programs, and more. The intent is to cultivate a community focused on validating the efficacy of AM for production and instill confidence in the quality of additively printed parts.
According to Sigma's Chief Executive Officer, Jacob Brunsberg, „Sigma began its life as a laboratory engaged in research and development of 3D metal printing technology and has a long history of working with universities, research labs, and standards organizations alongside our industrial customers. We are placing more structure around this activity and packaging it in such a way that it makes adoption and implementation much easier for our allies in the R&D community. These organizations are at the leadership edge and are crucial to the rapid adoption and scalability of additive manufacturing.“
There are already five members of the Sigma Additive Acgovdustrial Network from leading academic institutions, while government, consortia, and industrial memberships are in process. Sigma is offering increased discounts to new members to jumpstart collaboration within and across the network.
