Sigma Labs, Inc. has been awarded a contract by the Mississippi State University Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems, a world-class interdisciplinary research center that uses state-of-the-art technology to address engineering challenges facing U.S. mobility industries.

Sigma Labs, Inc. has been awarded a contract by the Mississippi State University Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS), a world-class interdisciplinary research center that uses state-of-the-art technology to address engineering challenges facing U.S. mobility industries.

The Mississippi State University Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems will install PrinteRite3D on a Renishaw AM400 machine, a new OEM platform for Sigma Labs, further proving out PrintRite3D's platform interoperability potential to an increasingly large machine base. Per the terms of the agreement, in addition to any research or commercial applications of PrintRite3D, CAVS has agreed to serve as a real-world test bed for new product improvements that Sigma will roll out over time.

"The Research & Development and University sectors of the additive manufacturing (AM) market is important to Sigma as we expand our footprint in the retail market segment with another contract win with the Mississippi State University Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems, a leading research institution and thought leader," said Mark K. Ruport, executive chairman of Sigma Labs. "They have agreed to act as a test bed for new product improvements to PrintRite3D, uniquely allowing us a real-world feedback loop to continuously improve our technology suite. I look forward to working with the entire team at CAVS to bring a new level of quality assurance to both their partners and the additive manufacturing industry as a whole," concluded Ruport.

PrintRite3D is Sigma Labs' patented in-process quality assurance software for the commercial 3D metal printing industry, providing real-time melt pool analytics. The software uniquely leverages thermal signatures to monitor the quality of each product part in the production process, layer by layer and in real-time, allowing operators to correct or stop production of a defective part - resulting in reduced error rates and higher yields. The software is currently being evaluated by tier-1 aerospace and OEM partners worldwide.
