Interest in Additive Manufacturing (AM) and its benefits over conventional manufacturing techniques continue to rise. Such benefits include the production of highly complex and ‘organic’ geometries, lower costs and delivery times for small production runs, and the customization of one-off bespoke components.

The challenge 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 used to process it. How do engineers make the right choices?

In this webinar, you’ll see how using the Senvol Database™ (the first and most comprehensive database on additive machines and materials) and the visualization and comparison tools in CES Selector 2019, helps you quickly identify which grades and machines are appropriate, and whether AM technology is a viable option for your component.

What you will learn

  • Quickly identify AM materials, grades and machines for a target application or component
  • Visualize and compare the performance of AM materials with conventional technologies
  • Justify your choice to stakeholders
  • Explore the Senvol Database
  • Watch a live demonstration of the most comprehensive data on AM materials and machines.

Who should take part?

  • Material specialists, product engineering, product design, research and development, innovation groups – anyone considering using AM.

Charlie Bream is the Senior Product Manager for CES Selector at Granta Design. After completing his PhD on recycling of thermoset composites at Brunel University, he spent 15 years in industry working on the development of lightweight materials and structures for British Aerospace (Space Systems), Pera International, and NXT before joining Granta in 2007.

About Granta Design

Granta Design is the leader in materials information technology, helping engineering enterprises to manage vital data and information about materials, analyze it to develop ‘material intelligence’, and apply that intelligence to make smart decisions across product design and development. We support the entire product lifecycle by integrating materials knowledge into design, simulation, and PLM, supporting 'cradle-to-cradle' product engineering.

About CES Selector

CES Selector is different. It combines a unique range of materials data with specialist tools to help you solve real materials problems. It has been improved and optimized for more than 20 years to deal with the subtleties of material selection. The 2019 version features new links from an updated Senvol Database™ to Granta’s MaterialUniverse data, enabling easy comparison between additive manufacturing and conventional materials technologies.

Pre-screen materials before simulation. Focus on the likeliest materials candidates – export data to support simulation for a wider range of materials across computational environments. New performance indices for longitudinal and flexural vibration enable you to consider vibrational properties during selection – important, for example, in automotive applications. Updated support on Granta’s eLearning site includes content for the Professional Level of the CES Selector Certificate Program. These details make the real difference. Arrange a demonstration to see how CES Selector can help.
