Rémi Mesnildreay - Granta Mr Rémi MESNILDREY
GRANTA DESIGN, Application Engineer


Everybody is talking about additive manufacturing, an innovative technique that promises to transform manufacturing. However, to fully understand the applications of this process, industries are confronted with several challenges. One of the most important is capturing and analyzing the large amount of data that it generates. How do we understand the impact of machinery settings, or the powders used, on a part? How do we know which parameters or relationships are critical? Which materials and machines are the most relevant to manufacturing a part? How do these new solutions compare to traditional methods? Granta Design has been working for more than 20 years in material intelligence technology, providing software and services to help enterprises to increase their material knowledge. Granta has extensive experience from world-leading additive manufacturing projects, such as the collaborative AMAZE project.
