Further information

There is currently huge interest in Additive Manufacturing and the benefits it offers for the production of low volumes of highly complex and custom parts. This can be driven by savings made in avoiding the use of expensive tooling, avoiding the need to keep a store of spare parts (often for years), customizing parts to individuals, or the creation of geometries and structures that cannot be achieved through conventional manufacturing techniques. The challenge in using these materials is the range of technology available, and the fact that the final performance is highly dependent on both the raw material feedstock and the machine that is used to process it. How do engineers make the right choices?

This webinar will focus on the Senvol Database™, the largest collection of data on Industrial Additive Manufacturing Machines & Materials, which is now available through Granta’s CES Selector and GRANTA MI software.


Who will benefit?

  • Anyone specifying or implementing Additive Manufacturing projects
  • Materials specialists
  • Project engineers, product engineers, development engineers and designers.


Zach Simkin is the President of Senvol, the industry leader in data for Additive Manufacturing. Zach’s particular area of focus is on commercializing Additive Manufacturing data in ways that are valuable to industry. Zach is fully engaged in a variety of activities throughout the Additive Manufacturing industry—he serves on the Data Integrity Advisory Group for America Makes, and leads Senvol’s work on the America Makes “Design Guidance System for AM” project, which is being done in collaboration with Georgia Tech University, Siemens, Stratasys, Lockheed Martin, and UT-Austin, among others. Additionally, Zach is a member of the ASTM F42 Committee for Additive Manufacturing Technologies and the SAE AMS-AM Additive Manufacturing Committee. He has been published in top industry journals, and has also been a featured speaker at numerous industry trade shows and conferences, such as RAPID, the Chem Show, and AM3D.

Dr. Sarah Egan has led projects at Granta Design that have developed a series of innovative knowledge resources for medical device materials and, more recently, for human biological materials. Dr Egan’s background in materials engineering for medical applications includes a PhD in Biomaterials from the University of Cambridge and an MEng in Materials Engineering in Medicine from Queen Mary College, University of London. As Medical Devices Product Manager at Granta she currently specializes in the compilation and application of materials data, the development and implementation of software for materials selection, and systems to enable materials information management in the medical device industry.
