Relationship aims to develop powerful new data tools for real-time AM in-process inspection – Metrology and Quality News

Dyndrite, provider of the GPU-accelerated computing engine used to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software, recently announced the addition of Sigma additive solutionsa leading provider of in-process quality assurance (IPQA) software for the additive manufacturing industry, to the Dyndrite Developer Council (DDC).

The DDC is a core part of the Dyndrite Developer Program, which provides tools, resources, and community for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), independent software vendors (ISVs), and service providers developing on the Dyndrite platform. Council membership allows vendors to collaborate on standards needed by the industry as a whole, positively influence technology directions, and gain early access to new technologies developed by Dyndrite and other Developer Council members.

Sigma Additive Solutions specializes in the development and commercialization of real-time monitoring and analysis solutions for advanced 3D metal and polymer manufacturing technologies. The Company’s PrintRite3D solution detects and classifies defects and anomalies in real time during the manufacturing process, resulting in significant cost savings and improved production efficiency by reducing waste, increasing efficiency and shortening cycle times. The company’s offerings are printer-agnostic and work with most major metal and polymer 3D printers.

“We are delighted to be part of the Dyndrite Developer Council,” said Jacob Brunsberg, president and CEO of Sigma Additive Solutions. “Quality begins at the part concept level and is linked throughout the additive workflow. Like our own company, Dyndrite shares a common commitment to building a backbone that works across industries and processes. Together, the two organizations, and especially the combination of our common technology, can help accelerate the adoption and scalability of quality in additive manufacturing, providing a critical pathway for accelerating additive industrialization.

AM today lacks the robustness and process repeatability required for wider adoption in most mass production applications. Machine parameters must be painstakingly validated on a given machine during a materials and process development campaign, as well as extensive post-build inspection and quality assurance, resulting in higher costs than traditional manufacturing methods. Through platforms such as Sigma Additive Solutions, users of metal and polymer 3D AM systems can dramatically improve quality, reduce costs, and increase throughput.

“Quality assurance with traceability, repeatability and calibration are essential components of any production manufacturing process,” said Harshil Goel, CEO of Dyndrite Corporation. “Our materials and process development tools for laser powder bed fusion are complemented by technology from Sigma Additive Solutions. We welcome Sigma Additive Solutions to the Dyndrite Developer Council and look forward to working with them to leverage the Dyndrite Application Development Kit to power their solution.

The adoption of AM as a tooling and production solution is on the rise. More recentlyUS President Joe Biden, in an effort to drive the adoption of additive manufacturing, created the Additive Manufacturing Forward (AM Forward) initiative, a public-private initiative to accelerate the use of 3D printing technology by small and medium manufacturers.

According Grand View SearchThe global additive manufacturing market was valued at USD 13.84 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.8% from 2022 to 2030. In total, 2.2 million 3D printer units were shipped globally in 2021 and unit shipments are expected to reach 21.5 million units by 2030.
