Sigma Additive partners with Novanta to develop innovative AM scanning solution
Novanta’s Firefly 3D scan head, designed for laser powder bed fusion machines, has been combined with Sigma Additive Solutions’ analytics software suite for process monitoring. The new solution will grant customers the ability to implement monitoring solutions across machine fleets without complicated retrofits to optical trains.
The solution offers an exceptional 200kHz data acquisition rate, enabling the potential for closed-loop control and laser correction. It easily scales to additional scan heads to attain the benefits of multi-scanner architectures with up to 100% field overlap. Single, dual, quad, and multi-row setups can now boost machines’ productivity to mass produce high fidelity parts with the benefit of Sigma’s quality assurance solutions’ support.
