Wilo SE is a worldwide manufacturer of pumps and pump systems for building services, the entire water management chain and industry. It comes as no surprise that Wilo is working with cutting-edge technologies such as Additive Manufacturing. Learn how they use the NETZSCH DSC 214 Polyma to understand the thermal behavior of new material choices.
This week, we move back from thermoplastics to UV-curing resins, which are deposited in a different way. Together with binder jetting, material jetting is the only Additive Manufacturing process that can print in color. We introduce the process principle and look at benefits and applications of Material Jetting.
The DMA GABO EPLEXOR® series enables the dynamic mechanical (or static) characterization of a wide range of different materials. By adding one of the two available autosampling systems (ASC – Automatic Sample Changer or MPAS – Multi-Purpose Automatic Sample Changer), any DMA GABO EPLEXOR® can be converted to a fully automatic testing system.

This festive season of the year is for many the season for baking cookies and biscuits. But then, we have to decide: parchment paper or silicone baking mat? Today, we are answering the question if the two options are safe to use.
In a previous article, the process window in the Selective Laser Sintering process with polyamide 12 powder was determined with dynamic measurements. In this article, we explain how isothermal measurements can be used for more advanced studies.
Our new video series comprises contributions in various forms and aims to bring expert insights from the field of pharmaceuticals to you. Our first guest is Christian Grune, pharmacist and PhD student. His work is focused on the characterization of nano-based drug delivery systems.
We are pleased to be part of the 18th International Congress of Rheology 2020. Visit our virtual booth and website to learn more about the new home of Kinexus and Rosand Rheometers. Test your rheology knowledge and win an Apple iPad!
Material Extrusion is the most widespread Additive Manufacturing technology. This week, we look at the process principle, materials used and at benefits and applications of this technology.
The Rosand RH2000 Capillary Rheometer is an instrument that analyzes the flow properties of any type of material under processing conditions, like high forces and high speeds. Our rheology specialist, Torsten Remmler, shows how to prepare the instrument for an experiment and gives important tips when operating it.
Photopolymers used in the Additive Manufacturing technology Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) are challenging materials. Little is known so far about the consequences of increased temperatures, e.g., due to higher room temperatures. A research paper aims to investigate the influence of temperatures on such dual curing resins and finds that the Photo-DSC is most effective in tracking the thermal conversion as well as to identify optimal exposure times.
