Your ‘private’ materials consultant

LIVE WEBINAR: Your 'private' materials consultant


When working with colleagues, partners and suppliers you need to be able to quickly check out ideas and concepts – so you can validate and justify material statements, and focus discussions on the important issues. In this webinar, we’ll show how the CES Selector software can act as an “impartial materials expert” that ensures informed discussions with colleagues and suppliers, and enables you to stay in control of the direction of projects by avoiding costly dead-ends.

What you will learn

  • Learn through an industrial case study how to focus development on the most appropriate materials
  • Check and validate materials options and suggestions
  • Inform discussion on materials with colleagues and suppliers, and enhance your internal and external relationships
  • Justify your choice of material to stakeholders
  • Watch a live demonstration of the materials data and visualization and comparison tools in CES Selector.

Who should take part?

Material specialists, product engineers, product designers, researchers and developers, and innovation groups.

About CES Selector

CES Selector is different. It combines a unique range of materials data with specialist tools to help you solve real materials problems. It has been improved and optimized for more than twenty years to deal with the subtleties of material selection. The 2018 version continues this tradition. It makes specific data and tool enhancements that help solve tricky materials problems, like how to filter materials based on combinations of materials properties, or how to factor-in weldability. These details make the real difference. Arrange a demonstration to see what we mean.
