Solving real-life engineering problemsCES Selector 2017

CES Selector 2017 – it’s what you
need to see

Materials property data contains the answers to many critical product development problems – if only you could see them! That’s where CES Selector comes in. It gives you the materials data that you need plus rich, graphical analysis tools. Choose a material for a new application. Find a drop-in replacement. Identify material risks. This new release adds even more selection capabilities, targets some commercially-important problems such as restricted substances and cost, and includes some great display and charting enhancements. These don’t just mean that CES Selector looks better than ever – they mean that you can produce great reports and presentations to analyze, explain, and justify your materials decisions. Not only can you see the right answers, you can help others to see them too!

Select the right metals
Select the right metals

Identify the risk of a material containing a restricted substance with new indicators for the REACH Candidate List and SIN List. Focus on finding alternative materials, hold informed discussions with suppliers, avoid wasting time on considering ‘unsuitable’ materials, and avoid materials that are likely to be restricted or banned in the future.   Consider machining speed and stress corrosion cracking when selecting metals with these new metals attributes in the MaterialUniverse. Filter candidate materials on these properties, and check your results by looking at these properties in comparison tables.
