  • Ensure regulatory compliance
  • Design for Sustainability
  • Granta MI AI+

Establishing a high-quality ‘gold source’ of enterprise-wide materials data is the foundation of digital transformation.

Improve simulation accuracy with access to an unrivalled catalog of materials property data.

Enable your materials experts to make trade-offs to save cost, weight and improve product quality.

Design Engineers can reduce design iterations by making better materials decisions early in the conceptual phase.

Connect your materials data to leading CAD, CAE and PLM solutions, guaranteeing accuracy and consistency.

Future-proof your AM processes by capturing critical property-process relationships.

From executives concerned with corporate liability to engineers making practical materials choices, manufacturing enterprises face restricted substances challenges at every level.

Identify and report on possible restricted substances in your product with the Ansys Granta MI Restricted Substances Module.

Key benefits:

  1. Avoid business risk due to restricted substance regulations (e.g. REACH)
  2. Consider compliance early in design, where change costs least and delivers the biggest impact.
  3. Prevent multi-million-dollar costs associated with expenses, delays or reputational damage.
  4. Base decisions on robust data about the materials and specifications that drive use of restricted substances.
  5. A partnership with Chemwatch to enable users with easy access to difficult to find substances data.

The sustainability add-on for Ansys Granta MI offers a rich toolset and the data to support sustainability experts, materials experts,  and designers in their engineering efforts to reduce product environmental footprint early in the design phase. 

Granta MI AI+ enables machine learning algorithms to be applied to Granta MI material datasets to enable materials teams to gather insights on process-property relationships.


Featured Webinars

Webinar on Demand
Ansys Webinar
A Faster Way to Develop and Optimize Materials

In this presentation, we will introduce the basic features of Multiscale.Sim and Granta MI with examples of generating (and extrapolating) material properties for multiple topologies.

We expect that our solution will be of interest not only to the aerospace industry, where the application of composite materials is mainstream, but also to customers in many other industries.

Material Intelligence for Sustainable Automotive Design Webinar Series

In this 3-part webinar series, our presenters discuss how the challenges around sustainability, supply chain uncertainty, and pivoting to new powertrains impact how engineers must accurately evaluate and compare different materials and optimize decision-making during the earliest stages of design. 

How to Win the Race to Electrification: The Four Pillars of Electrification
Managing Materials Knowledge at Vitesco Technologies

To develop future automotive powertrain technologies, Vitesco Technologies relies on the next generation of materials to deliver the required performance, quality, and sustainability. The Material Knowledge Base (MKB) was developed to offer a single source of material information, including experimental data, across the business. This ensures that engineers use a consistent, traceable, and accurate source of materials data for design and simulation purposes.

White Paper: Material Intelligence

The Business Case for Material Intelligence

If your organization makes or designs products, it uses materials. Information about these materials is vital, often with multi-million dollar impact. In other areas of product engineering, digital transformation is already highly embedded – for example, CAE, CAD and CAM are now ‘must haves’ for every manufacturing enterprise. Software technology to manage and effectively apply materials information had lagged behind – but this is changing, rapidly. In this white paper, we explore why this is, with materials information management increasingly established as a core engineering technology. Includes extensive case study and return on investment information.
