Comparing additive manufacturing materials with conventional ones

Highly complex and ‘organic’ geometries. Lower costs and delivery times for small production runs. One-off bespoke components. These are some drivers for the current interest in Additive Manufacturing (AM). But the performance of AM materials differs from that of conventional manufacturing route and is highly-dependent on the detail of processing conditions and the machines used. This all complicates the decision of whether to switch to AM.

In this webinar you’ll see how using the Senvol Database™ (the first and most comprehensive database on additive machines and materials) and the visualization and comparison tools in CES Selector, lets you compare the performance of the latest additive materials and machines with materials produced by conventional technology. Quickly identify which grades and machines are appropriate, and whether AM technology is a viable option for your component.

What you will learn

  • Visualize and compare the performance of AM materials with conventional ones
  • Quickly identify AM materials, grades and machines for a target application or component
  • Justify your choice to stakeholders
  • Explore the Senvol Database
  • Watch a live demonstration of the most comprehensive data on AM materials and machines in CES Selector.

Who should take part?

Material specialists, product engineering, product design, research and development, innovation groups – anyone considering using AM.

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.
