Santa Fe, New Mexico, UNITED STATES

SANTA FE, N.M., Dec. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sigma Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ:SGLB) (“Sigma Labs” or the “Company”), a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D® brand, today announced that it has received a contract from Laser Zentrum Nord (LZN) GmbH, a leading Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology and research innovator located in Hamburg, Germany for PrintRite 3D INSPECT®.  Terms of the contract have not been disclosed.

The two companies have also agreed to actively collaborate to certify Sigma’s IPQA® methodology and solutions for serial production 3D printing in the aerospace industry. The PrintRite3D® system will be installed onto a SLM Solutions selective laser melting machine located at Laser Zentrum Nord GmbH in Hamburg, Germany.

“Advancements of 3D metal printing into production have been hampered by the inability to identify, monitor and mitigate defects during the printing process,” said John Rice, Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs. “We’re excited to work with Laser Zentrum Nord GmbH on the in- process dynamic behaviors that cause defects and to demonstrate and document how our PrintRite3D IPQA® software addresses and solve these problems. This contract further validates Sigma Labs’ position as a leader in third party, platform independent quality assurance for the metal additive manufacturing industry.”

This instillation will add an additional machine platform to Sigma Labs’ successes for the deployment of Sigma Labs’ PrintRite 3D® quality assurance technology.
