The new way to simulate

With Virtual Molding you can create more than just a digital twin of your injection mold! It allows you to operate virtually over many production cycles with real machine settings. This creates your virtual injection molding production in all details.

 

Optimize your results even before the first shot or try different adjustments during ongoing production, without stopping. Thus, you can adjust every detail virtually during production and react quickly to new product specifications.

 

With our SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding Technology, you can meet today's tough demands on development, mold construction, materials, and production in injection molding. Discover hidden potentials, become even more economical, a troubleshooter and an absolute expert in the industry.

 

What's behind it? Let's go into detail!

The difference is made by SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding’s holistic approach to injection molding process simulation.

The core of the SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding principle is the realistic 3D simulation of flows, heat flow, and material characteristics in injection molding. This includes the complete mold with all details. As a result, SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding creates reliable information as the only acceptable basis for even more accurate and reliable decisions. SIGMASOFT® is the pioneer and pacemaker of this technology.

In addition to filling simulation, SIGMASOFT® offers you the chance to take a holistic approach to cycle-accurate production with Virtual Molding.

 

SIGMASOFT® is the only software that takes the complexity of injection molding seriously and maps it!

 

All the computable elements listed above are puzzle pieces of a detailed process. Only when you consider all of them in their interaction, a digital twin is created that realistically reflects your practice. We believe that this is how you receive the best results - in your daily work, from your time, and for your money. 

 

If only one of the elements that can be calculated is missing, the practice is no longer accurately represented. Therefore, in principle, all calculation elements are included in SIGMASOFT®.

 

Imagine you have to build only one mold without any correction loop; being able to predict exactly when your injection mold has settled; visualizing your process in every detail from mold closing to part ejection, optimizing production times, saving money and bypassing typical production start-up difficulties - without tedious trial and error. New colleagues are quickly trained and the painful learning process with rough and expensive mistakes also belong to the past.
