Real-Time Process Monitoring for Metal 3D Printing

Sigma Additive Solutions, a provider of quality assurance software to the commercial 3D printing industry, announced that it has expanded its collaboration with Materialise, a provider of 3D printing software and service solutions, to provide additive manufacturing (AM) users automated quality control by integrating the PrintRite3D quality assurance solution into the new software solution Materialise Process Control.

Combining multiple complementary data sources and analytic methods allows businesses to make faster, data-driven decisions, improving operational efficiency and driving revenue growth. Materialise Process Control allows manufacturers to analyze and correlate layer data from the 3D printing process. Sigma and Materialise collaborated to integrate PrintRite3D into Process Control and to make it available in CO-AM, Materialise's end-to-end software platform for 3D printing. Sigma's PrintRite3D suite provides in-process data, including thermal data from the melt pool, yielding layer data that can enable users to find the root cause of defects faster.

According to Sigma Additive Solutions CEO Jacob Brunsberg, "We are thrilled to build upon Sigma's existing collaboration with Materialise, bringing a holistic quality offering to the additive industry. Incorporating automated holistic quality offerings on the CO-AM platform will place vital data in the hands of owners and operators, allowing them to make informed decisions regarding the reliability and safety of components they produce."

Bart Van der Schueren, CTO of Materialise, added, "Materialise Process Control uses artificial intelligence to automate quality control, helping our customers save significant time and money. Through collaborations with partners like Sigma Additive Solutions, AM users benefit from a technology-agnostic innovation that offers unparalleled insights into their 3D printing process. With this data, our customers can continuously learn how to improve it."
