CES Selector—support critical material and process choices. Optimize cost, performance, and environmental impact.
CES Selector™ is a powerful PC software application that offers extensive materials property data, advanced graphical analysis, and specialist tools to support materials selection and substitution decisions.
Support early stage design, eco-design, and redesign of products—identify optimal materials and structures prior to detailed modeling, leading to a reduction in design iterations.
Enable material comparison, replacement, and substitution—reveal differences in performance and highlight risks associated with changing materials, enabling rapid yet well-informed decisions.
Develop & position materials & structures—visualize property space to guide development plans and communicate the benefits of your materials.
Access authoritative materials data—browse, plot, and compare engineering, cost, and eco data for metals, plastics, composites, ceramics and related processes.
