Jan 25, 2012, 09:30 ET from Sigma Labs, Inc.

SANTA FE, N.M., Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sigma Labs, Inc. (OTCBB: SGLB) announced today that, due to the Company's filing of three patents with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, it has made significant progress in increasing its licensable intellectual property ("IP") portfolio for its core technologies.  The patent filings specifically cover real-time monitoring and control for nondestructive inspection of advanced manufacturing technologies, and novel material and joining technologies for advanced munitions.  

Rich Mah, CEO of Sigma Labs, stated, "With these most recent patent filings, Sigma Labs has made significant progress toward our product goals.  Also, our recent acquisition of Sumner Associates has already borne fruit, as Sumner Associates has introduced certain of our patent-pending products to a major munitions manufacturer, who has expressed interest in licensing these products from us.  Mark Cola, President of Sigma Labs, added, "We now have stronger IP positions in our core product offerings through the new patent filings and through conversion from provisional to utility patent filings for our existing products.  Further, a recent contract from a Fortune 100 aerospace company for our real-time monitoring technology confirms our company's ability to perform for large international organizations.  These IP filings are a key part of our transformation to a primarily products-based business."
