SANTA FE, N.M., Feb. 22, 2012 -- Sigma Labs, Inc. (OTCBB: SGLB.OB) announced today that it has been awarded contracts from Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON -News) and Sigma Labs expects to generate $308,000 in revenue in 2012, with significant built-in growth opportunities. Vivek Dave, Vice President of Sigma Labs, stated, "These contracts embody different but equally important technologies. The first is an effort to integrate our next-generation manufacturing quality control technology for aeroengine compressors. The other is to develop the capacity to internally inspect computer generated parts in the rapidly growing field of Additive Manufacturing, which uses computers and lasers to directly print out 3D parts from computer files. Developing the capacity to internally inspect computer generated parts is an important component in the overall Additive Manufacturing process."
Sigma Labs has also achieved an important technical milestone in getting its IPQA – In Process Quality Assurance – technology approved for production on a new Boeing (NYSE: BA - News) manufacturing process that we believe will change the way aircraft structures are built. Mark Cola, President of Sigma Labs, noted, "Getting written into a production specification is a major breakthrough for us. Now that our IPQA technology is part of an approved production process for Boeing and can be used in lieu of traditional ultrasonic inspection, we plan to work with Boeing suppliers to implement our unique inspection method for this new production process. Furthermore we believe it will become an important part of producing Boeing commercial aircraft structures."
