SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding and ProMed Molded Products have lead the efforts to find the optimum design and process conditions before the mold is built to ensure maximum profitability and efficiency. Imagine the following scenario: you are confronted with a new molding project; a part is to be assembled with other components, so dimensional consistency must be kept within strict tolerances. The conventional approach would be to design the part and mold based on previous experiences, build the mold, and then start trials on the injection molding machine to meet the desired parts. Many things can go wrong during this process, and usually the time to learn the processing window in the machine is short and the pressure of delivering the parts is high. In the best-case scenario, parts are produced with the desired quality and on time through ‘Autonomous Optimization’. ProMed molded Products started implementing SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding technology to design optimum parts, tools, understand the effect of process parameters on the LSR molded part’s quality.
