Developing tooling and processes before cutting the
steel of a mold significantly reduces the money and time
spent during the ramping-up process of new parts. Traditionally,
simulation was limited to the design phase of a new plastic part,
as the software tools had only limited capabilities to consider
the mold and process steps. They were also difficult and time-consuming
to use, making them inherently un-fit for the fast-paced production
environment. SIGMASOFT® is the first plastic simulation tool that has
the capability to simulate all process and mold details, reflecting
the impact of all process and molding relevant parameters on the quality
of a part - accurately. The combination of ease-of-use, without the need
for “finite element meshing” expertise, and its “speed-to-solution”
complement the part, process, and mold development process at the molder.
SIGMASOFT® can also simulate elastomers and LSRs, a unique capability.
