Sigmasoft, maker of molding processing analysis software for thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and silicones, and MIM and CIM, has awarded its first "Industry Expert" award to Torsten Kruse, owner of Kruse Analysis. Kruse's background includes working for injection molding machinery manufacturer Arburg from 1986-1995 in the customer molding process development, where he attained his expertise in molding, materials and tooling.
As he became more knowledgeable in plastics processing he went into flow simulation, and started his own company in 1995. He began using a material processing analysis software in 1995. In 2001 after seeing a demonstration of Sigmasoft at the K show, Kruse was impressed. "I was using a different software at the time, but I clearly identified what simulation software should provide. Sigmasoft was way beyond anything I'd ever seen," he states. "I had the pleasure of working with Sigmasoft for several years prior to their opening their own North American office. I have been using the Sigmasoft software ever since."...
