3D Printing Industry, January 2019

The acquisition of Granta Design, the premier provider of materials information technology, expands ANSYS’ portfolio into this important area, giving customers access to material intelligence, including data that is critical to successful simulations.

With advances in the performance of metals, plastics, ceramics and other materials, including innovations in areas such as composites and additive manufacturing, manufacturers have a wealth of material choices when developing products. At the same time, they require accurate, traceable and reliable materials information to make smart materials choices and to ensure simulation accuracy. With this acquisition, ANSYS customers can benefit from access to the world’s premier system for managing corporate material intelligence and the market-leading solution for materials sources, selection and management. Granta customers can expect even easier access to ANSYS’ simulation technology.
