WIAM® METALLINFO: Metal standards enriched with data from accredited laboratories for quick material selection


The WIAM® METALLINFO material database and its modules for metallic parameters are an information system for materials recognized in industry and research and the best tool for selecting metallic materials. Oriented to the requirements of the user, an extensive data pool is available to you, which does justice to the questions from the most diverse areas. The metal standards are supplemented by recoding, manufacturer information and test data from accredited sources and laboratories.


Scope of Application

WIAM® METALLINFO provides databases for use for e.g. construction, material selection, standardization, calculation, simulation and in general product design. The database offers reliable material data for material selection, component & product development, construction, simulation as well as for purchasing and sales. Normalized characteristic values, flow curves, fatigue strength and time-temperature conversion diagrams make the database a valuable source for engineers.

Customer benefit

Do you need reliable and secured characteristic values ​​for standard materials? Do you know the properties that the construction material must have from your application and are you now looking for the right materials? Do you want information on suppliers and synonyms in the context of European and especially German standardization? Do you need to recode a material for another market? With WIAM® METALLINFO you can access over 2 million parameters online or make them accessible to the entire group on your intranet.
