Sigma Labs has been awarded a contract to supply its PrintRite3D quality assurance software by Lockheed Martin Space in the US.

As a part of this initial contract, the Lockheed Martin team will assess the viability of the 3D printing technology for defense and civil space applications.

‘After review of our needs and potential solutions, we selected the Sigma PrintRite3D system because of its robust analysis capabilities, quality assurance solutions, data capture technology, and scalability across various OEM 3D printing platforms,’ said Kristi Farley, vice president spacecraft at Lockheed Martin Space. ‘Assurance of print quality and repeatability is essential to the critical missions that we support.’
