The in-process quality assurance system from Sigma Labs now provides a consistent way to monitor production real-time across 3D printers from different manufacturers, supporting different processes, and now multiple types of materials. The new solution is designed to enable large global manufacturers to manage the quality and consistency of parts manufactured in-house, by contract manufacturers, and throughout their supply chain.

The demand for Sigma Labs’ Print Rite3D technology comes from a need to support SLS customer production requirements and growing marketplace demand for real-time in-process quality assurance in additional material types. The enhanced Print Rite 3D software will translate the in-process signatures from SLS radiated emissions, allowing for real-time monitoring of the polymer prints. This will provide end users and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with the ability to monitor production and to rapidly detect and identify anomalies and defects, delivering greatly improved quality assurance.
