Solving a major material supply issue – 

Guest speaker: Matériautech Allize-Plasturgie

Regardless of how many precautions you put in place to secure the supply chain for your materials, there will always be disruptions beyond your control. For example, a worldwide shortage of Adiponitrile (ADN) is currently impacting production of PA66 resins. This is not a one off – in recent years there have been similar issues impacting the supply of PEI and PA12, for example.

In this web seminar, we’ll hear an industrial case study from Matériautech, a specialist research center on polymers, on how they approached the shortage of PA66. You'll see how these problems can be quickly and easily solved by having access to complete and comparable data on materials – and the tools to help you interrogate it. With these resources, you can save a huge amount of time and effort considering alternatives, avoid dead ends, and get ahead of the competition in recovering from the disruption.

What you will learn

  • Hear examples of material supply chain disruption, and the impact it can have on your business
  • Benefit from an industrial case study on Matériautech’s experience of finding alternatives to PA66
  • Find out about enhanced features in the new CES Selector 2019 that make it faster and easier to respond effectively to materials problems.

Who should take part?

  • Materials subject matter experts who may be required to respond to material problems or recommend alternative options
  • Managers of product development teams, engineering functions, or strategic procurement wishing to ensure organizational resilience

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.
