Granta MI can capture data generated during testing and development projects.

Granta Design says that it has updated its Granta MI materials information management software to make it easier to incorporate ‘Digital Twin’ strategies.

Version 12 of the software reportedly has new capabilities to manage materials data, ensure traceability, and apply it in design and simulation. It also helps users assess and ensure regulatory compliance, while improved integration with PLM and CAD enables the deployment of accurate materials definitions throughout the product lifecycle.

Granta MI can capture data generated during testing and development projects, now with improved options to link to large data files such as CT scans used in additive manufacturing (AM) projects. Correlations between process and materials parameters can be visualized to help understand performance. Version 12 includes new plot types in the MI:Mat Analyzer app, plus trend identification and easy export to text and CSV files.

The library of materials reference data available with GRANTA MI has also been updated, with the latest versions of references such as CAMPUS Plastics, MMPDS, and ASM Medical Materials. There is also access to the Senvol Database for AM machines and materials; JAHM Curve Data to support simulation and UL Yellow Cards safety and quality guarantee for plastics.
