- Sigma to Expand Agnostic Software-only Offerings to Provide Key Analytics to EOS Machine, Process, and Part In-process Data
Sigma Additive Solutions, Inc., a leading developer of quality assurance software for the commercial 3D printing industry, has announced its membership in the EOS Developer Network (EDN) by EOS, a leading supplier of responsible manufacturing solutions through industrial 3D printing technology. Sigma is now able to provide software and analytics applications based on EOS application programming interfaces (APIs).
The EDN partner programme streamlines services and tools to enable Sigma to expand its software offering through the EOS digital thread, including data preparation, machine management, process data acquisition, and reporting. EDN also provides API documentation, code samples, dedicated support from solution experts, and access to virtual EOS systems for testing and validation.
EOS Developer Network
Open software interfaces, according to EOS, have a significant impact on the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) in general and industrialization in particular. As a result, the company established the EOS Developer Network (EDN) to assist the AM software community in developing seamlessly integrated software products.
This EDN partner programme allows additive independent software vendors and high-end system users to create their own software applications based on EOS application programming interfaces (APIs.) When integrating EOS APIs, manufacturing execution system (MES), computer-aided design (CAD), product lifecycle management (PLM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and computer-aided quality, the network streamlines software developer needs (CAQ). It includes services and tools for creating a digital thread, such as data preparation, machine management, process data acquisition, reporting, and project acceleration.
“This is a great step in allowing us to support customer quality at every point of their additive journey, as well as better integrate with other software solutions. EOS is a premier supplier to the entire additive manufacturing industry, including both metals and polymer technologies.”– Stephan Kuehr, General Manager of European Operations, Sigma Additive Solutions
Kuehr continued, “We share their mission of providing high levels of manufacturing quality and economic sustainability. We believe that the combination of EOS’ machine platforms with Sigma’s pedigree in agnostic monitoring and analytics software will be a marketplace differentiator and catalyst for growth of the entire additive industry.”
Stated Mirco Schöpf, Product Line Manager Software, EOS, “We are very pleased to welcome Sigma Additive Solutions to the EDN partner program. EOS believes open software interfaces have a strong impact on the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) in general and provide opportunities to speed up industrialization. We created the EOS Developer Network (EDN) to support the AM software community to build seamlessly integrated software products that add to the powerful foundation EOS has built.”
