Granta and Senvol Team Up on Selection of Additive Manufacturing Processes and Materials



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.

Granta Design and Senvol have announced that the Senvol Database, a comprehensive database of Additive Manufacturing (AM) materials and machines, will be available within Granta's materials software, GRANTA MITM and CES Selector. "As a result, development teams will be better able to find valuable AM data and to identify the best machines and materials for their projects," said a company spokesperson.

"There are now hundreds of industrial AM machines and compatible materials. New products are coming to market weekly. In this fast-evolving landscape, picking the best options for a manufacturing or research project is a tough call, and a wrong direction can be costly."

The Senvol Database provides details of over 550 machines and over 700 materials. Within the Granta software, users can search and compare materials based on properties, type or compatible machines. They can identify and compare AM machines based on supported processes, manufacturer, required part size, cost or compatible materials (and their properties).

GRANTA MITM enables companies to create a single, easily-accessible source for all corporate materials data - both proprietary intellectual property (IP) and data from trusted reference sources. The GRANTA MI:Additive Manufacturing package provides best practice data structures and tools to manage AM data, capturing valuable IP for re-use and building the knowledge base required to understand and improve AM processes. Integration within this system makes the Senvol Database instantly accessible and searchable for scientists and engineers through the same web browser interface that they use for routine access to their proprietary AM data and their company's wider materials and process information.

CES Selector software is an easy-to-use PC tool for plotting, comparison, and materials selection using materials data. Now its charting tools can analyze and present data from the Senvol Database - for example, quickly generating a plot to compare the properties of all Ti-6Al-4V materials that are compatible with a specific machine. CES Selector systematic selection features can filter machine and material options based on their properties and help the user to assess trade-offs in order to identify candidate machines and materials for a particular application.

Within both Granta products, the Senvol Database becomes part of a comprehensive, integrated library of materials data covering metals, composites, plastics, ceramics and more.
