Quality assurance Sigma’s new software module helps standardise machine health data logs
Software company Sigma Additive Solutions is releasing a beta version of the Print Rite3D Machine Health module. This new solution marks the beginning of the company’s software-only approach to quality assurance by allowing users to take disparate machine log files and standardise them.
Built upon Sigma’s Print Rite3D monitoring and analytics technology, the company is creating a framework for connecting and standardising distinct sensors and images into a cohesive product suite.
New features of the software include a path to scale for integrated sensor fusion of camera, thermal camera and melt pool data. Users profit from the added ability to link machines by API or upload all machine sensor .csv log files. The software can create a common standards-based file format for analytics, visualisation, and reporting, agnostic of machine type. The Machine Health module provides a single cohesive environment for all in-process quality data, customisable to unique production requirements. Deep insight, analytics, and reporting of machine sensor data ensure that users can use data to their advantage. A dashboard is showing all relevant key metrics.
The objective of the initial module is to help drive a standards-based approach to additive manufacturing, allowing users to gain consistency across their sites and supply chains. Allowing users to take disparate machine log files and standardise them is a first step in connecting distinct sensors and images into a cohesive product suite.
