Metal Replacement—the Rise of High-spec Polymers

with Hannah Melia and Dr Charlie Bream

Join this web seminar on Thursday, May 14 to find out how the CES EduPack Polymer Edition and CES Selector can help to find suitable substitutions when replacing metal parts with polymer ones in high-spec applications.

This webinar will mix demonstrations of CES Selector, Granta's materials selection software for industry and research, with a discussion of CES EduPack, the educational software that helps to teach materials principles and skills, including materials selection.

  • Find out how CES Selector can be used as a tool for materials development, selection and substitution, enabling research laboratories, academics, and R&D groups in industry to find alternative materials in challenging applications.
  • Discover how the CES EduPack Polymer Edition can help students to develop the skills that employers are looking for in rational selection and understanding of high-spec polymers.
  • Watch a real life case study focused on how CES Selector's tools have supported the replacement of the aluminum alloy of a pressure regulator housing by Honeywell Aerospace, the well-known manufacturer of a wide range of mechanical systems and accessories for the aerospace and marine industries.

About CES EduPack and CES Selector

CES EduPack™ is the world-leading teaching resource for materials in engineering, science, processing, and design. It provides a comprehensive database of materials and process information, powerful materials software tools, and a range of supporting textbooks, lectures, projects, and exercises. With specialist editions for specific disciplines, and three levels of the database and software to suit varying needs in all years of undergraduate study and in postgraduate teaching, CES EduPack is a curriculum-wide resource.

CES Selector™ is the leading industrial tool enabling materials experts and product development teams to find, explore, and apply materials property data, CES Selector is built on the same principles as the CES EduPack software. Instead of the extensive teaching resources available in CES EduPack, CES Selector provides specialist tools, extensive materials property data, and advanced graphical analysis for industry and research centers.
