ANSYS And Material Intelligence Leader Granta Design Sign Definitive Acquisition Agreement
With advances in the performance of metals, plastics 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' gold-standard simulation technology. Granta will continue its open ecosystem, integrating with a wide range of leading product lifecycle management, CAD and computer-aided engineering solutions.
"Granta Design has pioneered the field of materials information technology," said Shane Emswiler, ANSYS vice president and general manager. "With materials engineering becoming an increasingly important aspect of product development, our customers require high-quality and comprehensive materials information for accurate simulation results. Integrating Granta's solutions into the ANSYS portfolio will provide a seamless user experience – and enable our customers to innovate like never before."
"For nearly 50 years, ANSYS has been the leader in engineering simulation," said David Cebon, co-founder and managing director of Granta Design. "Combining that expertise with Granta's decades of experience in material intelligence will help our customers make smarter decisions when developing their next-generation products."
