From 11 to 12 November Birmingham’s NEC will be playing host to the annual Advanced Engineering Show. This free-to-attend event will see 700 supply chain engineering exhibitors in one location.
Amongst these exhibitors will be Granta Design, a Cambridge UK based company that specialises in materials information technology.
At its booth, Granta will be showcasing its latest GRANTA MI Version 8 software and CES SelectorTM 2015.
GRANTA MI enables companies in sectors including aerospace, automotive, energy, industrial and consumer equipment, and medical devices to manage their proprietary data on composites, metals, plastics, and other materials. They can combine this data with authoritative reference data, creating a single, trusted source for corporate materials information.
At the Advanced Engineering Show, Granta will demonstrate the latest MI:Materials Gateway technology, which integrates this information into CAD, CAE, and PLM software (supported systems include: Autodesk Inventor, Abaqus/CAE, ANSYS, CATIA, Siemens NX, Pro/ENGINEER and Creo, Teamcenter, and PTC Windchill).
Visitors to the Granta booth will also see the new MI:Product Intelligence tools, which apply materials data to assess and avoid regulatory and environmental product risk. And further new Version 8 features, which will be fully announced in November, will be on display.
The Granta team will also be demonstrating CES SelectorTM 2015, a desktop PC software package that enables engineers to find, plot, compare, and apply materials property data, particularly for material selection and substitution. The 2015 edition includes new tools that make it easier to specify engineering requirements during materials selection.
Other benefits include enhanced export of material property information for use in FEA; new and extended data supporting metals equivalency studies; and improved data coverage of plastics, medical materials, and composites. For those concerned about environmental and supply risk, additional resources include enhanced traceability of eco data and new data on critical materials and related risk factors.
