Tooling Studies

We are organized to carry out the majority of our tooling studies in China. These are approved and supervised by our French team who work jointly with our clients.

For the most complicated processes, we are able to carry out studies in our French design office.

All our tooling studies are approved thanks to an elaborate procedure. This validation process has been tried and tested for years within Sigma group.


Studies and design, our services

According to your requirements we can offer you these services:

  • Customer part analysis (clearance, closure, feasibility)
  • Rheological study
  • Changing part files
  • 2D / 3D tooling design
  • Template design and metrology support
  • Design of gripper/robot hands
  • Provision of a technical file

To carry out our studies, we use a panel of powerful and complementary software:

  • CATIA V5
  • AutoCAD
  • Unigraphic
  • Creo
  • Spinfire Viewver



Turnkey mold design

The turnkey mold concept allows us to cross-reference the metrological and rheological results and compare them within Sigma. This makes it possible to carry out 3D part and 3D mold correction according to the metrological analysis of the part & tooling in comparison with the initial CAD.
