The AMC is a group of industry, government, academic, and non-profit research organisations working to commercialise metal additive manufacturing technology.

Sigma Labs has also received an initial contract from the EWI as part of a grant from the US Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for the development of in-process sensing and monitoring capabilities to ensure consistent quality in 3D printing. The grant, worth US$5 million in total, was awarded to a group of universities, laboratories, and companies in the field of additive manufacturing. Sigma Labs' contract will evaluate the company's PrintRite3Dtechnology for monitoring and control applications.   

"I am very pleased to announce that Sigma Labs is now part of the AMC, considered the foremost group of organizations in additive manufacturing," said Mark Cola, president and CEO of Sigma Labs.
