Ceram optimises designs as part of lightweighting service

Ceram, a materials technology company based in Staffordshire, is now able to offer design optimisation as part of its lightweighting service, meaning thousands of lightweight product designs can be explored virtually before optimal designs are selected and turned into prototypes.

The company’s materials development team works with clients to create products that are lighter, with the benefit of less material and often less energy being used to produce them.

According to Ceram, the team can use the software quickly and effectively to define parameters and performance characteristics, and to shortlist the most appropriate designs according to application.
