Siemens PLM Connection 2012

Americas User Conference, 2012
Las Vegas, NV, May 7-10, 2012


Access to managed materials data from within engineers' daily-use CAD and other PLM tools is a high priority for engineering organizations—providing rapid access to approved information, without the need to use a separate software package.

In response to customer requirements, Granta is working with Siemens PLM to provide access to the GRANTA MI materials information management system from within Siemens PLM software. The latest deliverable is an integration with NX, the computer-aided design, manufacturing, and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE) package. Further integrations will follow.

If you are interested in accessing approved corporate materials data from your Siemens PLM software and are attending the Siemens PLM Connection event in Las Vegas (May 7-10), why not email us to arrange an appointment on our booth (number 28)?

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for NX is the latest implementation of the MI:Materials Gateway technology that enables engineers and designers to access accurate, up-to-date, approved materials information within their routine workflows. It is now possible for users of the NX software to install the MI:Materials Gateway technology, enabling them to view their corporate materials database, to choose materials, and to assign those materials to parts, quickly, easily, and with full traceability, with no risk of error due to data transfer.

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for NX enables users of the NX software from Siemens PLM to directly access and use materials property data from a GRANTA MI database, while working in their familiar CAD environment.

As the materials information technology experts, Granta works with its customers to connect their PLM technologies (such as CAD and CAE systems) to their managed corporate materials database, helping to:

  • Ensure the validity and quality of critical materials property data used in product design and analysis
  • Deploy corporate materials knowledge and reference data throughout CAD and FEA/CAE communities, in a controlled and secure manner
  • Enable designers and analysts to get materials property data directly within their engineering application, without interrupting their workflow
  • Embed product analytics and materials selection tools into design software

Meet us to discuss your integration requirements
