MES supplier and analytics leader join efforts to enhance end user productivity and data pedigree, companies report.

Sigma Labs, Inc., developer of quality assurance software to the commercial 3D printing industry, has signed an agreement with AMFG, provider of manufacturing execution systems (MES) software for additive manufacturing (AM), to expand the footprint of both companies’ solutions. 

Specifically, the combination of the MES and in situ monitoring systems will allow AMFG and Sigma Labs users and OEM companies to:  

  • automate full production workflow, including key visibility into production monitoring;
  • move towards automated part and process qualification;
  • view data in real time, with ability to dive deep into analytics feed;
  • capture data to support simulation, material properties prediction and final pedigree, and key quality assurance checks to decrease post inspection needs; and
  • provide data connectivity and integrity throughout the manufacturing process agnostic of equipment environment. 

The ultimate goal, according to the companies, is improving manufacturing overall equipment effectiveness and ultimately shortening time to qualification for related components.

“While there are point solutions that solve specific challenges, everyone benefits when data between systems flows freely and is used to optimize the entire process,” says Sven Hinrichs, AMFG’s global head of Technical Consulting. “We’ve been great admirers of the tremendous strides Sigma Labs has made in ensuring part quality and qualification and are very happy to partner with their team to integrate for customers into an optimized end-to-end solution.” 

“We chose to partner with AMFG because of their solid reputation in the manufacturing execution space,” says Jacob Brunsberg, president of Sigma Labs. “Like Sigma Labs, AMFG is committed to deep collaboration that benefits individual customers as well as the additive manufacturing industry as a whole. The focus has shifted in the past several years from developing technology for technology's sake, to solving the end user's business problem. Both of our companies are industry leaders in embracing this trend.”
