Metal additive manufacturing Ermaksan to use Sigma Lab's quality assurance software on metal additive machine
USA — Developer of quality assurance software for the commercial 3D metal printing industry, Sigma Labs, has been selected by Ermaksan Innovative Technologies to provide its In-Process Quality Assurance technology as a factory option on its Enavision 3D metal additive machines and will be integrated with the Materialise Control Platform (MCP).
Ermaksan Innovative Technologies has ordered Sigma Lab's Print Rite 3D in-process quality assurance software as a factory option for the Enavision 3D metal additive machine. The cooperation commences with an initial contract for a single system from Ermaksan to install the software at a new customer site in Turkey. Initially, Sigma Labs will install the system at the the clients' facility in Bursa, Turkey and expects to be in the position to certify the Enavision system as Print Rite3D Ready before ultimately moving the system to the end user’s facility. Sigma Labs will provide Ermaksan with a comprehensive Print Rite3D in-process quality assurance (IPQA) system and hardware, software, training, engineering and metallurgical consulting and related support services.
Mark Ruport, Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs believes that the integration and certification of the software at Ermaksan’s factory will help ensure the best solution for their end user customer. Sigma’s Print Rite 3D Ready initiative was launched in 2020 so to assure global manufacturers of a consistent, standards-based way of monitoring the quality of a printed metal part, regardless of which metal 3D printer they are using. The company believes the certification will facilitate the acceleration of 3D metal printing by enabling the manufacturer to be agile and load balance production across a heterogeneous collection of printers while ensuring that the part’s quality meets the design requirements.
