At K 2022 in Duesseldorf Sigma Engineering presents the evolution of Sigmasoft at booth 13-B29. The new version 6.0 has a completely fresh user interface and beside other new features now also contains the possibility to analyze the traditional Compression Moulding of elastomers.

Until now, simulative mould and process design were limited mainly to modern injection moulding technology. Sigmasoft has already been utilized successfully by leading elastomers processors, and their desire to also simulate the older processes was voiced many times. The industrial significance of Compression and Transfer Moulding remains high, as safety and precision parts are also manufactured using these processes. The use of high-quality materials makes a better process understanding and in advance optimization through simulation even more desirable. The simulation also allows for a secure evaluation of curing degree and process-cycle data. Issues such as the quantity, shape, weight, and position of the preforms can also be optimized easily. This allows to improve the quality of the moulded parts while reducing the material usage — without cumbersome and costly series of trials. In Sigmasoft, all thermal influences on the component and in the mould, from the smallest screw to the energy loss of the mould over several cycles, can be viewed in detail during the simulation of compression moulding. This makes thermal optimizations or improvements on cycle time easy.
