Sigma Labs Partners with Jaguar Precision Machine
The two companies will work together to manufacture 3D-printed parts for aerospace and defense applications, with contracts expected this year.
Sigma Labs, Inc. (Santa Fe, NM), a provider of quality assurance software under the PrintRite3D® brand, announced that they have signed a commercial alliance with Jaguar Precision Machine Corporation (Albuquerque, NM), a precision prototype machining facility that is allowing Sigma to provide end-to-end 3D advanced component manufacturing capabilities, including computer aided design (CAD), engineering (CAE), manufacturing (CAM) and inspection (CAI).
This deal follows the recent expansion and strengthening of the Sigma suite of integrated, advanced manufacturing services through an earlier alliance with Morf3D (El Segundo, CA). By leveraging Sigma’s 3D printing capability with PrintRite3D quality assurance software, Jaguar will be able to provide increased production rates while ensuring consistent part quality. These two companies will also work together to manufacture 3D printed parts that require exact precision to demanding specifications, with contracts expected in 2017.
“We’re pleased to announce a partnership agreement with Jaguar Precision Machine, another innovative manufacturer in the aerospace and defense (A&D) sector,” said Mark Cola, the president and chief executive officer of Sigma Labs. “Due to the growth in demand for high precision, high quality metal components in this sector, we’ve decided to join forces to better serve a number of OEMs with their next-generation applications. Working together, we can design, engineer, manufacture, and assure the quality of AM components across a number of exciting A&D applications. This team of companies now have the capability to deliver additional services to a broad customer base.”
“Partnering with Sigma is a critical step for us in developing our branded ‘3D Advanced Manufacturing Ecosystem™’ capabilities,” added Dan Schatzman, the chief executive officer/owner of Jaguar. “This will enable us to offer our customers high quality 3D-printed parts for end use A&D components, and we believe our combined expertise will give our them the best solutions for additive manufacturing.”
