At this year’s K Show SIGMA Engineering will align its booth concept with the motto ‘SIGMAinteract – Autonomous Optimization connects departments’ and present its new SIGMAinteract.
In a co-operation project, SIGMA will show how to use virtual DoE during the entire development process. With SIGMAinteract, results are displayed interactively and in 3D. Thus, its usage makes knowledge tangible and easy to share.
At the SIGMA booth in Hall 13, Booth B31, this immediately becomes visible with a completely new design concept.
Making informed decisions throughout a project requires involvement from partners in various departments. This means project data must be provided to each participant and they will need free and easy access to it. Therefore, SIGMA presents its new SIGMAinteract so that users can share SIGMASOFT results interactively and in 3D.
Visitors can experience and use SIGMAinteract live at the booth, where SIGMA will demonstrate how virtual DoE is used most efficiently and how the SIGMAinteract tool significantly contributes to a good interdisciplinary exchange. As a demonstration, SIGMA uses the project ‘Pot Cloth’, which was realised as a collaborative project with Momentive Performance Materials GmbH, Germany, EMDE MouldTec GmbH, Germany, Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH, Austria, and Nexus Elastomer Systems GmbH, Austria.
In this project part design and tool construction were done in parallel. Therefore, it was necessary for all partners to work closely together. Simultaneously, SIGMA conducted a virtual DoE for the validation of the part design and the evaluation of the heating concept.
At the SIGMA booth visitors can also virtually observe the production of the ‘Pot Cloth’ live. It will be produced on a SmartPower 90/350, control UNILOG B8, from Wittmann Battenfeld. The LSR injection moulding tool, including the cold runner system, was constructed by EMDE MouldTec. The system is completed by a ServoMix X200 dosing system from Nexus Elastomer Systems. Silopren LSR 2640 from Momentive Performance Materials is used as material for the production.
