Thermal Analysis using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Sigma Design understand Complex engineering solutions are, well, 'complex'.Â-  That accurately describes the challenge of recent job for a global metal manufacturing firm.  In this job Sigma was to reverse engineer and model a heat exchanger that is used in a foundry for creating alloy steel bars. In this application, hot metal flows in from one side, at 2800°F, and is...

Winning the Rat Race

The term 'rat race' has been described as a seemingly pointless or endless pursuit".Â- The work of today's research scientist is hardly pointless but one aspect of the work, while not endless, was a tedious pursuit.  We are describing the work of researchers charged with the task of  observing and documenting the behavior of mice in lab settings. The job was to...

SIGMA Networking with Federal Labs and Licensees to Accelerate USA Tech Commercialization

US investment in RD at federal laboratories has been the fuel for long term US technology advancement and competitiveness - from space exploration to internet development. Now, more than ever, the private sector needs to bridge the chasm between the federal laboratories and the marketplace in order to boost the economy and propel hi- tech job growth. There are opportunities to harvest the $400...

University Collaboration

At universities all over the country, scientists are churning out the research that can potentially lead to innovative new products. But many of these great ideas get stuck in academic labs because university scientists lack the business experience to develop a commercial product. Today's universities are supporting these products further and assist in the commercialization process. Montclair...

Prevention Invention

Anyone with a gas stove has probably had the scary experience of realizing that they have left the stove burner on. Unlike today's refrigerators that call you back to the room when you have left the door ajar, most gas burners provide no indication that they are still on. A simple mistake could lead to a deadly fire in your home. Matthew Porraro came to Sigma Design with a solution to prevent...

Global Manufacturer of Engine Filters Saves 3 Months and Thousands of Dollars in Cyclic Fatigue Testing Program

A globally-known filter manufacturer had a fast-paced program and needed help to reduce their test program time. Starting with a first-pass iteration of a filter canister design, Sigma engineers used non-linear plastic simulation analysis to determine whether long-term cyclic loading would be likely to cause permanent deformation, and worse yet, failure.Â- Ã‚  After further simulation...

Sigma's In-House Manufacturing Capabilities: Thermoforming

Sigma is now thermoforming in-house at their 20,000 square-foot Technology Commercialization and New Product Development Manufacturing Center in Middlesex, New Jersey. The versatile process of thermoforming can be used to design prototypes and packaging trays. After a plastic sheet is heated, it is then draped over an object and then vacuumed. When the plastic cools it creates a textured...
