Additive Manufacturing

Capture the right information from your AM projects, analyze it for insight that helps get solutions to market faster.

Additive manufacturing promises to transform manufacturing, but only if we understand process parameters and their effect on materials, so that we can control part performance, consistency, and quality. A pre-requisite is a strategy to capture, and then mine, material and process information in order to gain this understanding. Granta can help you to do this, and to then deploy the knowledge that you create in a controlled, traceable manner, supporting the Digital Thread.

Manage AM project data

Capture the right information from your AM projects, analyze it for insight that helps get solutions to market faster. Improve understanding of critical property / process relationships. Future-proof your AM research and development, e.g., by ensuring that you are prepared for product or part qualification.

Apply best practice

At the heart of our AM data management solution is a database deploying the Granta AM Data Schema: a data structure developed through years of experience working in leading AM projects. You can benefit from this industry best practice right now, by downloading a document that outlines the Schema.

 


Select AM machines and materials

The Senvol Database is the first and most comprehensive database of Additive Manufacturing (AM) machines and materials. Use it with the GRANTA Selector software to understand AM options and compare them with each other and with conventional technologies.

 

Plotting property data for AM materials from the Senvol Database™ using the CES Selector™ software helps to understand materials options and focus on the best choice.

Collaborative Projects

Granta has been involved in leading AM-related industry collaborations over many years.  Find out more on our Collaborative R&D pages.

Success story

Granta supported the industry-leading AMAZE Additive Manufacturing project, enabling the capture, sharing, and analysis of project data.

The AMAZE Project

AMAZE is a collaborative project that aims to rapidly produce large, defect-free additively-manufactured (AM) metallic components up to 2m in size, ideally with close to zero waste, for use in sectors including aeronautics, space, automotive, nuclear fusion and tooling. Granta is providing an overarching materials information management system for the consortium, enabling the 28 project partners to pool materials data and to create a single go-to source of knowledge. This data is used, for example, in simulation work to understand and optimize AM processes. It can also help to construct a clear picture of the cost structure and environmental footprint of a given metallic component.
