Ziegler PEM Material Database

Use of Altair Ziegler SnRD Material Database.

The choice of suitable material pairs can avoid unexpected and undesirable noises occurring in products, as the phenomena can usually be traced back to the incompatibility of materials causing a stick-slip effect. An experience reinforced with over ten years of numerous research projects, ZIEGLER Instruments commands a wealth of know-how of such material pairs. The company has collected this knowledge into its leading Precise Expert Materials (PEM) database which consists of over 11,000 individual measurements and incorporates many of the common materials in the marketplace, all designed to help manufacturers to choose material pairs. The database is ideal for organizations that design products where unwanted noise can negatively affect customer satisfaction.

This data can be accessible and used in two main ways:

Integration in SnRD

Perform a squeak simulation in SnRD using Impulse Rate from database for quantification. Minimal set of data required to perform a squeak simulation is integrated in SnRD solution.

Learn more in Material Mapping.

Complete Ziegler PEM Database on AMDC

Perform a Material Compatibility Analysis or advanced Squeak simulation which require access to all test data and diagnostics.

A user-friendly web portal that adds significant data exploration capabilities. This includes the ability to filter data using different criteria, the saving of favorite searches for easy re-access, comparison capabilities between materials using tables and visuals, and more.

Visit the Altair Material Data Center to access Ziegler PEM Data.
