SIGMA presents Autonomous Optimization at Fakuma 2017

Now the scene has changed: even while designing the part or the mold it is possible to have a virtual injection molding machine to try all modifications. And now, with the Autonomous Optimization, you can actually ask this virtual injection molding machine to solve by itself a desired problem. It is possible to ask it to minimize part deformation, for example, and the machine will “set-up” itself.

Early adopters have described the SIGMASOFT Autonomous Optimization tool as a real “game changer” in injection molding. “This tool will change the way we produce. It will change the way we set-up new processes and the way we design our molds”, declares one of the molders which tested the potential of the new technology.

With the Autonomous Optimization, SIGMA Engineering is committed to helping its customers to systematically reduce production costs and to fully exploit the potential in the whole development chain, from part design to mold layout to process set-up.

SIGMA is 100% owned by MAGMA, the world market leader in casting process simulation technology based in Aachen, Germany. Our SIGMASOFT Virtual Molding technology optimizes the manufacturing process for injection molded plastic components. SIGMASOFT Virtual Molding combines the 3D geometry of the parts and runners with the complete mold assembly and temperature control system and incorporates the actual production process to develop a turnkey injection mold with an optimized process.

LSR application

In the assessment, it is easy to make further restrictions to the parameters and goals to find the optimum solution or as in the case of the LSR application the optimum process window for a specific material and a minimum required curing degree
