A partnership of engineering teams from Sigma Labs (developer of in-process quality assurance software for the additive manufacturing industry) and Additive Industries now qualifies MetalFAB1 as PrintRite3D Ready. This enables Additive Industries’ MetalFAB1 to be equipped with a melt pool monitoring solution. Ready for up to four full-field lasers and real-time multilaser visualizations, the integration of the PrintRite3D Melt-Pool monitoring solution is a valuable addition to the MetalFAB1 product. Real-time visualization can be viewed in 2D or 3D and potential anomalies in the part will be highlighted.

“Our engineering teams have truly accomplished a remarkable milestone in 3D metal printing by designing and building a high-performance computer platform that processes sensor data and produces a near real-time visualization for a quad laser printer,’ says Mark K. Ruport, president and CEO of Sigma. “We are very pleased to be working with an industry leader such as Additive Industries to accelerate the industrialization of 3D metal printing. The MetalFAB1 is a remarkable printer and it’s a privilege to have it certified as PrintRite3D Ready.”

Additive Industries says that the integration of the PrintRite3D Melt-Pool Monitoring solution in its MetalFAB1 is an important addition to its product portfolio. “The PrintRide3D solution matches very well with our focus on quality and reproducibility, allowing our customers to benefit from reduced post-processing cost, and faster part qualification,” says Mark Vaes, CEO and CTO of Additive Industries.
