Empowering innovators by resolving materials challenges

Materials by Design™  accelerates the materials development and optimization cycles, from idea to product. Demonstrated to eliminate trial-and-error, leading to 50% reduction in time and 70% reduction in costs. 

Daido Steel: Partners in innovation through Materials by Design
QuesTek’s ICME approach has dramatically streamlined (our materials) investigations and changed the way we think about materials development
Mr. Shigeki Ueta, Deputy General Manager of Daido corporate R&D center
From CALPHAD to flight: Ferrium S53 enables $50M cost savings      
Ferrium S53 was developed with only five prototypes over a two-year period resulting in a development cost savings of approximately $50 million
