Altair has announced the acquisition of M-Base Engineering + Software GmbH, which supplies material database and material information systems, with a focus on plastics. They said that the acquisition of M-Base will allow Altair to offer comprehensive, high-fidelity plastics database available on the market, which will directly connect with Altair’s  solvers. 

James R. Scapa, founder and chief executive officer of Altair said,”The integration of M-Base into the Altair ecosystem brings deep knowledge and experience in material database projects, as well as the high-quality data our customers require to improve the design of their products. It also expands our presence in the plastics industry, as M-Base holds strong relationships with plastics manufacturers and the gold standard, CAMPUS. We look forward to working deeply with CAMPUS members to grow together.”

One of the most important decisions in product development is the selection of materials for production. Altair said that the acquisition of M-Base is an important step to deliver comprehensive material information and infrastructure to predict and optimise product performance through simulation. M-Base’s offering covers the complete lifecycle of material data, from testing and test evaluation to computer-aided engineering (CAE) interfaces, with a focus on plastics.  

 M-Base will bring to Altair first-rate plastics material data supplied directly by material producers, deep knowledge in material database technology. It will also provide plastics material data preparation from raw data to data consumable by designers and engineers.

M-Base is the official software supplier to Computer Aided Material Preselection by Uniform Standards (CAMPUS). Altair will continue to invest in CAMPUS to ensure consistent, high-quality material data for customers to drive accurate simulation results said the company.

Accurate material selection in the early design phases

 Dr. Peter Höck, head of technical product and quality management polycarbonates at Covestro said, “As a steering committee member of CAMPUS, we have built a beneficial relationship with M-Base who helped us to broaden the impact of the CAMPUS database. We are confident that Altair will bring expanded benefits to our members through their technology, teams, and investments.” 

M-Base’s Web-based plastics database, Material Data Center, is a plastics information tool that enables accurate material selection in the early design phases and offering continuity throughout the product lifecycle claimed the company. It covers the complete international plastics market including the entire content of the CAMPUS database and an application database, a tradename directory, a literature database, and several other tools to support designers and engineers. 

 Dr. Erwin Baur, co-founder of M-Base said, “Integrating our technology and Material Data Center with Altair will provide excellent functionality for engineers and designers during material selection and product development processes.”
