Sigma Labs Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB) Signs Joint Sales Agreement with Leading Provider of 3D Printing Controls Software

  • Sigma Labs, Materialise joint sales agreement calls for product commercialization
  • Earlier MOU outlined integration of Materialise MCP Controller, SGLB PrintRite3D(R) technology
  • Exclusive product expected to lower additive manufacturing costs, improve yield and profit margin, lead to closed loop control

Sigma Labs Inc. (NASDAQ: SGLB), the only provider of in-process, quality-assurance software to the commercial 3D-metal- printing industry, has entered into a joint sales agreement with Materialise, a leading provider of additive manufacturing software and sophisticated 3D-printing services (

An earlier memorandum of understanding provided a framework for the two companies to cooperate on the integration of the widely used Materialise MCP Controller with Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D(R) technology, together creating an integrated PrintRite3D and Materialise Control Platform (MCP) product. The companies have now achieved integration and will begin offering a unique product solution for retrofit of existing machines, OEM machine integration and closed loop control. Commercialization of the 3D printing industry’s first in-process quality control software is expected to commence immediately.

“Growing our partnership with Materialise is a significant milestone for Sigma Labs as we expand our footprint in the market and add momentum to our quest to broaden industry access to our groundbreaking PrintRite3D software,” SGLB Executive Chairman Mark K. Ruport stated in a news release. “The alignment is a natural step for both companies, as Materialise has a strong presence in the additive manufacturing market and a reputation for quality products. Commercializing and jointly selling this integrated solution will benefit both companies as well as advance the forward momentum of innovation in the 3D-manufacturing industry.”

SGLB scientists, engineers and software developers developed proprietary hardware and software technology that uses thermal readings to detect and predict anomalies during the 3D-printing process. This technology, incorporated in Sigma Labs’ PrintRite3D software, features real-time monitoring, analysis, feedback and control that delivers impressive results.

When utilizing the software, end users can lower their additive manufacturing costs and improve yield and profit margin. The MCP is an embedded hardware and software solution that addresses the growing need for broader and more straightforward control over the additive manufacturing process by giving full control to the end-user.

Materialise brings together three decades of 3D-printing experience into a range of software solutions and 3D-printing services, which together form the backbone of the 3D-printing industry. Materialise’s open and flexible solutions enable players in a variety of industries, including healthcare, automotive, aerospace, art and design, and consumer goods, to build innovative 3D-printing applications designed to make the world a better and healthier place. Headquartered in Belgium with branches worldwide, Materialise combines the largest group of software developers in the industry with one of the largest 3D-printing facilities in the world.

Founded in 2010, Sigma is a software company that specializes in the development and commercialization of real-time, computer-aided-inspection (CAI) solutions known as PrintRite3D for 3D-advanced manufacturing technologies. SGLB’s advanced, computer-aided software product revolutionizes commercial additive manufacturing, enabling nondestructive quality assurance mid-production, uniquely allowing errors to be corrected in real time.
