DatapointLabs Adopts Matereality for Direct Deposit of Materials Testing Deliverables

Clients Now Have a Single Point of Access for Managing their Materials Information

Effective today, DatapointLabs has enabled direct connectivity to its affiliate, Matereality, to offer its clients a single point of access to all of their material testing deliverables, as well as software for working with their data.

Taking advantage of the expanded capabilities in the Matereality V8 release, DatapointLabs now will direct deposit all material testing deliverables into each client’s secure Matereality database: measured properties data in TrueDigital™ format; test reports in PDF format; and any CAE-ready material cards that were created. This not only consolidates each client’s materials information into a single repository, but also provides clients with access to Matereality’s suite of productivity enhancement software for material data visualization, analytics, and CAE material parameter conversion. Digital Data Delivery, which includes establishment of and access to a Matereality Personal Material Database and software, is made available to DatapointLabs clients at no charge. The option to upgrade to Matereality Workgroup and Enterprise solutions with additional software capabilities is enabled easily when multiple users see value in working with the same data and are ready to scale up their implementation.

"Materials information is an aspect of product data that must be accessible by engineering teams at many phases of the product lifecycle," said Hubert Lobo, founder and CTO of both DatapointLabs and Matereality. "Matereality delivers technology to organize every aspect of this complex and highly varied data, supported by analytical tools and software modules to aid materials engineers, CAE engineers, test labs, and designers in their daily tasks."

Previously, DatapointLabs clients have had the option to have their material properties data delivered electronically via Matereality, but test reports were provided by other means. DatapointLabs has now adopted the patented Matereality technology to store and manage all of its materials information, streamlining delivery to clients, as well as its own internal operations.

Matereality User Interface Facilitates Connection to DatapointLabs Projects

In a corollary development, users of Matereality software will see new apps on their MyMatereality home page. The DatapointLabs app enables one-click access to DatapointLabs’ website, where they can generate a quote, order material testing, and review previous test history. The Project Grid app provides a summary grid view of all material properties data, test reports, and CAE model files associated with each project in their database.

About DatapointLabs + Matereality

DatapointLabs is a US-based center of excellence for the measurement of material properties required for product development, CAE, and R&D. We apply scientifically rigorous techniques to provide precise characterizations of virtually any materials used in the products of today and tomorrow, including plastics, rubber, metals, composites, foams, ceramics, and even foods, in an ISO 17025 production environment.

The company is a pioneer in using the latest technologies in quantitative material testing characterizing physical properties of materials in the solid and melt states, including mechanical, rheological, thermal, pvT, viscoelastic, impact, fatigue, and creep. The company delivers research-quality material data inputs for CAE in as fast as five business days for standard tests. DatapointLabs is a partner of choice to the leading CAE software vendors.

Today, DatapointLabs, together with its affiliate, Matereality, offers expert material testing services and software for material data visualization, CAE material parameter conversion, and management. The goal is to provide fast, easy-to-use services that foster in-depth understanding of purpose-specific material behavior, eliminate typical risks associated with generic data, and accelerate the pace of product development.
