Sigmasoft software lets users simulate the injection-molding of plastics. The software simulates the cavity, as well as all the details of the complete mold. Mold builders can see the preheating, injection, and curing phases over several production cycles, letting them evaluate the performance of a mold before the steel is cut. The software can also predict the curing reaction of elastomers and the thermal performance of mold-tempering systems.
