Granta Design shows updated composite software at Composites Europe

Solutions for managing composite data, qualification and specification of composites

Cambridge, UK – November 1, 2016. Granta Design will be presenting its latest materials software technology, solutions for managing materials data, and support for the qualification and specification of composites at Composites Europe in Düsseldorf, Germany (November 29 - December 1).

Granta is the world leader in materials information management. It supports the composites industry in sectors including Aerospace, Automotive, Defense, Sports Equipment, and Wind Technology. The GRANTA MI:Composites Package provides the leading solution for the composite data management challenges in engineering enterprises. It supports rigorous, auditable composite qualification and equivalency processes—and integrated into the same system are authoritative reference sources providing test and design data. CES Selector™ is the leading PC software for materials selection.

Visit Location B23 in Hall 8a to see:

  • Best-practice management of composite data using the GRANTA MI™ Version 10 system, due for release in December 2016
  • The recently-released CES Selector™ 2017 software, which provides unique graphical tools to analyze the performance of composites relative to other materials
  • Case studies, including materials information management at RUAG Space, and materials selection at FORCE Technology
  • Granta in the guided exhibition tours: ‘Composites Solutions in the Wind Energy Industry’ (Nov 29) and ‘Composites Solutions in the Automotive Industry’ (Dec 1).

FORCE Technology used CES Selector to optimize the performance of a composite longboard.

Granta works closely with companies like Boeing, NASA, Lockheed Martin, and Honeywell Aerospace as part of the Materials Data Management Consortium to manage mission-critical materials data. This knowledge is embodied in GRANTA MI and applied in many engineering companies.

RUAG Space, a leading supplier of products for the European space industry, prioritizes lightweight solutions and it used GRANTA MI to provide a single, reliable source for all its materials data, capturing proprietary data and external reference data. This has resulted in time savings and company-wide consistency.

Danish technology consultancy company FORCE Technology, which develops products using composite materials, used CES Selector to quickly identify candidate materials for a longboard (a longer version of a skateboard) and evaluate how they could be combined to achieve optimal results. It developed a new longboard design with a smoother ride and 30% weight saving compared to the current state-of-the-art board—and it will be on display at our booth.
