SIGMA’s operation in Asia started with the foundation of the company -
MAGMA Engineering Asia-Pacific Pte Ltd (www.magmasoft.com.sg) in Singapore in the year 1996. The prime objective in the early years was to build up a strong team with technical expertise in casting process optimization, followed by identifying qualified local partners that can represent SIGMA and MAGMA and our products in the diverse Asian markets.
Singapore, providing its business friendly environment, was the ideal choice to act as the communication hub, transferring casting optimization knowledge and offering various services to our customers to implement SIGMASOFT® and MAGMASOFT® successfully in Asia.
With the increased demands and success of SIGMA and MAGMA in Asia, and to offer local services in strategic locations, we have since opened a joint venture in Korea, a wholly owned subsidiary in China and a branch office in India which has been converted to a wholly owned subsidiary of MAGMA Giessereitechnologie GmbH in July 2019. MAGMA Engineering Asia Pacific now acts as the headquarter of MAGMA in Asia and is located at the German Centre in the International Business Park, Jurong area in Singapore.
About SIGMA Engineering & MAGMA
SIGMA Engineering (www.sigmasoft.com.sg) is sister company to MAGMA (www.magmasoft.de), the world market leader in casting process simulation technology based in Aachen, Germany. Our SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding technology optimizes the manufacturing process for injection molded plastic components. SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding combines the 3D geometry of the parts and runners with the complete mold assembly and temperature control system and incorporates the actual production process to develop a turnkey injection mold with an optimized process.
At SIGMA and MAGMA, our goal is to help our customers achieve required part quality during the first trial. The two product lines –injection molded polymers and metal castings –share the same 3D simulation technologies focused on the simultaneous optimization of design and process. SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding thus includes a variety of process-specific models and 3D simulation methods developed, validated and constantly improved for over 30 years. A process-driven simulation tool, SIGMASOFT®Virtual Molding provides a tremendous benefit to production facilities. Imagine your business when every mold you build produces required quality the first time, every time. That is our goal. This technology cannot be compared to any other simulation approach employed in plastics injection molding.
New product success requires a different communication between designs, materials, and processes that design simulation is not meant for. SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding provides this communication. SIGMA support engineers, with 450 years of combined technical education and practical experience, can support your engineering goals with applications specific solutions. SIGMA offers direct sales, engineering, training, implementation, and support, by plastics engineers worldwide.
