CES Selector data


Further information

The number materials on the market is continuously expanding. As designs evolve and requirements become harder to meet (e.g. higher operating temperature, reduction in weight, etc) companies seek alternative materials. The challenges include knowing which of the thousands of alternatives to focus on, finding materials properties, price and environmental data, and justifying your choice to stakeholders. These alternatives may be outside the field of experience of regular suppliers and consultants. CES Selector addresses all these issues by providing access to databases covering all classes of materials, along with the tools to rapidly identify the most suitable candidates. This saves considerable time and cost by enabling users to focus their development effort on the most promising solutions.

This session will be of particular interest to:

  • Materials specialists
  • Project engineers, product engineers, development engineers and designers.
