GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for Windchill

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for Windchill is an application that enables users of the Windchill software from PTC to directly access and use validated materials property data from a GRANTA MI database, while working in their familiar PLM environment.

MI:Materials Gateway provides tools to access and browse the corporate materials database and Granta-supplied reference data on materials properties. You can choose applicable materials, and assign those materials to parts being managed within Windchill. Full traceability is maintained so that, at any time you, or other authorized users, can immediately reconnect to the original material record in the database, and find the latest data—including for "downstream" analyses requiring additional information on the materials.

This application is the second major integration with PTC software. The GRANTA MI:Materials Gateways for Pro/ENGINEER and Creo CAD systems, already provide access to validated materials property data from within Pro/ENGINEER or Creo. By providing this materials knowledge management application for Windchill, capabilities already available to designers will become more widely accessible. This benefits managers and costing, environmental, or other specialists when they review individual products or look across product families.
