Granta Design new tools for qualification of composites
22 March 2015
Granta Design has released new software and services to support a rigorous, auditable composite qualification process, particularly where data traceability is important for regulatory and other purposes.
New software tools for capturing, processing, and reporting on composite data have been added to the existing GRANTA MI:Composites software package. A new Granta service helps companies configure and deploy this technology to support their qualification workflows; for example, for test requests, test matrix generation, capture of composites data, analysis, and management reporting.
The GRANTA MI:Composites software package was developed with input from leading aerospace companies, based on the industry-leading GRANTA MI materials information management platform. It enables engineering enterprises to manage all of the valuable, but complex, data associated with composite materials: their lay-up, cure cycle, directional properties, and the properties and history of their constituent parts.
New qualification tools have been added to the package to help with key tasks in the composite qualification process—such as defining a test program, or importing data from test machines to a central database. These tools are available via a new service for Granta clients.
This new Composites Qualification Service configures a GRANTA MI:Composites software package for a user organization’s specific needs. For example, Granta experts will quickly set up data import tools so that they automatically process data from a specific test machine.
By taking advantage of this new service, OEMs build a system that makes it faster and easier to define test programs and to capture, analyse, and use their results. They ensure a systematic, documented process, from test request to design allowable. They reduce errors and delays and protect vital corporate intellectual property.
