As an OEM Partner, amace will integrate Sigma’s PrintRite3D monitoring and analytics technology into its STLR Series of production-ready machines in order to support its customers with real-time quality monitoring and analytics. The agreement starts with multi-unit sales to support both internal future development and customer deployment.

Most important, the team at amace shares our passion to improve machine, process and part health, while enabling cost-effective, high-volume production. The fact that amace utilizes the Materialise Control Platform (MCP) is also a plus given our recent announcement that we are working with Materialise to allow users to identify and correct metal build issues in real-time via a closed-loop control process.”
