Our Capabilities: Fiberglass Pattern and Mold Making

Sigma Design used a suite of skills to develop the design for the base for WATTLOTS Power Arbor’s™ solar parking lot canopy system. The system is designed to provide renewable electrical energy where it is needed to existing surfaces.

Charles Horvath, Sigma engineer tech, works on the plug for the fiberglass mold.

The process began with designing a 3D model in CAD. The design was then printed in the fused deposition modeling (FDM) machine and the pattern for the fiberglass decorative protective base covers were built. The base provides stability to enable rotation to maximize sun exposure.

The covers will be used with the Power Arbor’s™, which will be installed at Runnells Specialized Hospital of Union County located in Berkeley Heights, NJ. The pattern can be used to make exact duplicates for years to come.

Bird-Friendly Wind Power Brings Manufacturing Jobs to New Jersey

Raymond Green, a World War II veteran and retired welder and operating engineer has hired Sigma Design Company located in Middlesex, NJ to test, analyze, refine, optimize and manufacture his patented invention: Catching Wind Power® (CWP) Compressed Air Enclosed Wind Turbine. Once launched, it will bring 25+ new technology jobs to New Jersey.

The blades of traditional wind turbines can kill bats, birds, and other flying wildlife. This was a concern to Green, so he designed a system that eliminates external blades. The patented “Inner Compression Cone Technology” (ICCT) squeezes the incoming air, compressing it as it is drawn through the turbine and multiplies it creating more power. The ICCT technology also creates virtually no noise. The blades are internal, closer together, and smaller therefore eliminating the sound traditional blades make as they spin and swoop past the tower. The turbine is offered in different sizes ranging from personal portables to massive wind farm units. This versatile product is very cost-efficient for any location and allows the user to take green energy anywhere they go.

Catching Wind Power® turbines can replace or be added to existing wind farm towers.

Green, who is 89 years old and resides in Jackson, CA, felt strongly about entrusting this project to a veteran-owned company. He found Sigma Design, owned by Jerry Lynch, P.E., a U.S. Navy veteran. Green’s vision is the launch of this alternative energy product, which will create jobs in America for U.S. veterans.

CWP is an early-stage company and has patents in the USA, which were granted on 02/13/2007 and 03/16/2010. The company also has patents in New Zealand, Australia, China and 27 countries in Europe. These patents and IP will become major assets of the company. CWP products will have numerous applications such as military and remote installations; these systems have global market appeal.

Sigma and Raymond Green are forming an investment team to bring the product to market. Interested investors are invited to contact Sigma Design.
