Sigma Labs, Inc., today announced it has released Version 3.0.2 of its PrintRite3D INSPECT In-Process Quality Assurance (IPQA) software. This evolutionary version of PrintRite3D is now available for new installations and upgrades to existing customers. This latest release features Sigma Labs’ new and proprietary Thermal Energy Density (TED) In Process Quality Metric (IPQM), setting what the Company views as a new industry standard for quantitatively measuring melt pool and part quality.
Armed with Sigma Labs’ new PrintRite3D INSPECT Version 3.0.2 software, process engineers will now be able to produce an alloy-specific process map generated using Sigma Labs’ in-process TED metric, an industry first. This industry first approach to in-process monitoring is designed to enable rapid process qualification, which Sigma Labs believes will result in increased production yields and faster product to market times.
The new version of PrintRite3D INSPECT also provides a complete production-level package of statistical process control (SPC) software apps, which digitally supports serial production quality monitoring at a build, part, layer or scan level, thereby ensuring continuous operation within the qualified processing window.
