WILLIAM LARGENT (06/06/2013 12:08:26 PM):could you talk about the munitions where you see this going. Also revenue possibilities from this.
Vivek Dave (06/06/2013 12:08:30 PM):GE will be in production in 2014
Vivek Dave (06/06/2013 12:09:12 PM): with regards to metal printer companies, we have talked to two of the three largest companies under NDA and these discussions are ongoing
Harit RC (06/06/2013 12:09:46 PM):Have you talked to other transportation companies like Northrop Grumman or Bombardier ?
Vivek Dave (06/06/2013 12:10:08 PM):For munitions we have licensed the technology to a company with significant direct experience (founded by former shooter and SOCOM individuals) who are currently addressing the best markets for initial introduction.
Vivek Dave (06/06/2013 12:11:05 PM):We started off at our very inception by doing very significant work for Boeing on aero structures and we are actively looking at where this technology will make sense for these applications.
Harit RC (06/06/2013 12:11:06 PM):Is Sigma Labs attending any upcoming conferences and what are some of the next company updates that we can expect on the horizon ? Licencing agreements ? Osseostat ?
Vivek Dave (06/06/2013 12:11:52 PM):We will most likely be attending several aerospace and defense conferences in 2014 but we are solidifying our plans now
Vladislav Raber (06/06/2013 12:13:13 PM):Is your 3d printing technology currently used or will be used in 'non-functional' enterprises such as I have seen with other 3d print companies? Would such ventures be worthwhile for your company/technology?
Vivek Dave (06/06/2013 12:14:50 PM):Although the initial focus is on functional components that have a high quality acceptance set of requirements, there certainly are applications to a wide range of plastic manufacturing. Some of the high end plastics 3D printing is functional and that would represent a logical entry point into non-metals.
