CLICK FOR VIDEO - The Story Behind Sigma Labs
B6 Sigma’s real-time monitoring and control technology for additive manufacturing technologies will allow a rapid and low cost approach to metallic aerospace part certification & qualification.
- B6 Sigma is developing the methodology, models, and analytical tools, required to rapidly and inexpensively certify & qualify metallic aircraft components produced using additive manufacturing technologies (eg. DMLS, EBDM, etc.).
- PrintRite3D® INSPECT™ - software for OEM’s and end users of additive manufacturing processes which verifies quality layer by layer, mm2 by mm2.
PrintRite3D® SENSOR PAK™ - the auxiliary hardware kit that sits on every AM machine to collect the data to drive the software.
PrintRite3D® DEFORM™ - (in development with Honeywell Aerospace) software which predicts distortion and calculates the PRE-SHAPE that results in the right FINAL SHAPE.
PrintRite3D® ANALYTICS™ - software for AM Big Data management.
PrintRite3D® THERMAL™ - software which predicts the thermal profile in the part.
Current and future security needs call for new munitions that are lighter, put greater energy on target, and cause less collateral damage. B6 Sigma's patent-pending BAM technology is the solution.
obtained the complete assignment interest in its critical patent on advanced dental implant technology thereby enabling commercialization to proceed unencumbered. This supports Sigma Labs exclusive marketing agreement (EMA) with Manhattan Scientifics, Inc. (http://mhtx.com). The EMA sets forth the parties intent to market Sigma Labs technology to prospective licensees and strategic partners. The Sigma Labs rapid healing implant uses former U.S. National Laboratory technology to create a surface that can completely integrate with bone in four to six weeks, with attendent reduction of inflamation and patient discomfort.
- (Advanced Reactive Materials and Structures)
B6 Sigma's patent-pending ARMS technology can be used to create structures that "break up on demand", releasing energy and completely consuming the material. There is no dangerous shrapnel outside the blast zone. ARMS is ideal for offensive and defensive applications, battling insurgency and terrorism at home and around the world.
- (Bonded Advanced Munitions)
BAM is an insensitive / reactive bullet. It can be tailored to meet target-specific needs. BAM is not a segmented bullet – it is bonded. BAM can be thought of as upgrading a 50 cal bullet to act like a 20mm round. BAM also enhances BAE – Behind Armor Effect and provides the same effect as an exploding round without problems associated with exploding-type rounds.
Andvanced Dental Implant Technology
Mark Cola, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs, stated that, "In an continuing effort to monetize our full IP portfolio while maintaining focus on our efforts in PrintRite3D® for metal 3D printing, we are pleased to work with Manhattan Scientifics to identify prospective licensees and strategic partners for our advanced dental implant technology. Manhattan Scientifics has a similar heritage of commercializing advanced technology from leading U.S. national research institutions."
Manny Tsoupanarias, Chief Executive Officer of Manhattan Scientifics further stated that, "We are pleased to have the opportunity to market Sigma Labs dental technology. We feel this technology may be very attractive to the global dental implant market and potentially other implants as well. We plan to leverage our previous work and contacts within the industry to create new opportunities for both of our companies." Manny Tsoupanarias continued that "Sigma Labs technology is entirely in line with our focus on nano-medicine technologies and augments our previous work in nanomaterials for dental implants."
Sigma Labs Announces Contract for "America Makes" Program
SANTA FE, N.M., Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sigma Labs, Inc. (otcqb:SGLB) ("Sigma Labs" or the "Company"), a developer of advanced, in process, non-destructive quality inspection systems for metal-based additive manufacturing and other advanced manufacturing technologies, today announced that it has been granted its first contract, worth approximately $500,000, from GE Aviation as a member of the winning team, previously announced, of companies and universities awarded an "America Makes" additive manufacturing (AM) research project. This project is funded by the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII) and covers Sigma Labs' proprietary In-Process Quality Assurance (IPQA®) software for advanced AM monitoring. The contract will showcase the Company's PrintRite3D® technology across multiple platforms, in particular high-volume, high-quality aerospace components. Sigma Labs is expected to deploy a total of three systems – one each to GE Aviation and to other team members Honeywell and Aerojet Rocketdyne, a unit of GenCorp – over the next 18 months.
"We are very pleased to announce this first contract under our previously-announced award with NAMII," said Mark Cola, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Labs. "Working with some of the best known companies in the industry, including GE Aviation and Honeywell, we will use this project to further demonstrate our PrintRite3D® technology and provide for additional data collection. We believe awards such as this open up the way for business development opportunities and, at the same time, strengthen Sigma Labs' position in the nascent yet rapidly-growing AM space."
