Considering processing costs when screening materials

With focus on metals selection

Join us on Thursday, October 13 to find out about how you can consider material and processing costs alongside other design requirements when selecting metals in the early stages of product development using new features in CES Selector 2017.

Register for this no-cost webinar to:

  • Learn how the data and tools in CES Selector help to quickly identify candidate materials for metal applications, saving you time and effort by focusing on promising candidates
  • See how the Part Cost Estimator enables you to estimate shaping process costs, allowing you to compare machining against near-net shape processes and identify the cross-over point
  • Find out about new data on ‘Machining speed’ and resilience to ‘Stress Corrosion Cracking’, for all metals, in the MaterialUniverse
  • Learn how CES Selector can provide confidence in your material choices and help you to communicate your recomendations to project stakeholders and sponsors.
