IDES Inc. of Laramie, Wyo., has released a new plastic material-selection software called Prospector Pro.
Prospector Pro accesses 40,000 material data sheets from 390 resin companies worldwide. It includes design data, multipoint data and comprehensive data sheets direct from suppliers, and sourcing information. The system integrates with resin manufacturer and distributor material selection products and Web sites.
New features include exporting of design to HTML, text or Excel files, the ability to order samples from General Polymers, or buy resin from GE Polymerland. Users also can request quotes from resin suppliers and distributors.
IDES also has improved some aspects of its database. For example, if a user cannot find a certain data sheet, they can contact IDES and the company will track it down within 24 hours, then add that data sheet to the overall database.
