Manufacturing organizations are excited by the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing. But how do you look beyond the hype and understand whether AM is the best option for your specific application? How do you select between AM options? In this webinar we’ll show you how to access data and tools that meet these challenges.

What you will learn

  • Find out how to access data about the material and process options available for use in AM processes (including the Senvol Database™)
  • See graphical analysis tools that enable you to apply this data to compare AM against other options, and select the best approach
  • Learn how to identify the right manufacturing option and present your business case to stakeholders in a compelling way
  • Hear about data management challenges that you should consider in setting up an AM project

Who should take part?

  • Materials Subject Matter Experts who need to make decisions about materials and process options and strategies
  • Product development managers who want to ensure their teams select the most effective and cost-effective manufacturing routes
  • AM Project Managers who need to specify AM manufacturing routes and justify them against other options.

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.
