Think before you specify the same material... again!


In this webinar, we’ll ask you to think again. And we’ll help you to do this. How often do you specify the same material for a new application? It's very typical, and understandable, for companies to rely on materials that they understand well. But, with materials and products constantly evolving, can you always be confident that this is the right decision? We’ll take a look at how to check and validate materials choices, before you commit to
a design.

What you will learn

  • Learn, through an industrial case study, how to check and validate your choice of material in the early stages of a project using the CES Selector software
  • See how you can identify alternative materials and avoid expensive design and redesign iterations
  • Understand how to confirm when your current preferred materials are good choices; you can avoid wasting time looking for better alternatives that don't exist
  • See how to justify your choice of material to stakeholders
  • Discover options for focusing development on the most appropriate materials, saving time and cost


Who should take part?

  • Material specialists, product engineers, product designers, R&D and innovation staff in general manufacturing, consumer products, consumer electronics, medical and healthcare, automotive, aerospace, or sports goods.

About the presenter

Peter Cherns Dr. Charlie Bream is the Senior Product Manager for CES Selector at Granta Design. After completing his PhD on recycling of thermoset composites at Brunel University, he spent 15 years in industry working on the development of lightweight materials and structures for British Aerospace (Space Systems), Pera International, and NXT before joining Granta in 2007.

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.
