Virtual Molding Software Enables Process Evaluation
MoldMaking Technology

SigmaSoft Virtual Molding technology from Sigma Plastic Services is designed to evaluate and optimize injection molding processes and molds for increased efficiency, productivity and part quality.

The Pellet Enters the Melt Delivery System
MoldMaking Technology

Choosing a hot or cold runner system is a decision for the molder and moldmaker that must balance the processing window with budget and time.

Initial Pellet Contact is the Screw
MoldMaking Technology

Here’s what every moldmaker should know about an injection molding machine’s reciprocating screw, which is often misunderstood and applied to the process incorrectly.

Plastic Injection Molding Starts with the Pellet
MoldMaking Technology

This is the first article in a new series that will examine the injection molding process by breaking down the path a plastic pellet takes as it is transformed from Pellet 2 Part. It covers what every moldmaker should know about raw materials, including the fundamentals of viscosity curves, Melt Flow Index, Melt Flow Rate, shear and more.

Maximize Process Efficiency
MoldMaking Technology

Cooling simulation tools can help companies evaluate thermal management early to make informed decisions that will lead to reduced risk downstream.
