The collaboration with many different companies and institutes reached a new climax this week. With its collaboration partners, NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing has organized the second composites seminar in Spain.
Thermal analysis answers many questions in different business divisions of the manufacturing industry. However, getting the most information out of the measurements is often difficult as in literature only single values and not complete thermograms are available. Polymer databases are common tools for other methods like FT-IR or GC-MS. Learn how the database for thermal analysis instrumentation facilitates your daily work.
Corex Plastics (Australia) Pty Ltd is a leading manufacturer of twin wall profile Fluteboard® and Corflute® sheet and solid sheet extrusions. The company’s closed loop philosophy forms an integral part of its business, but also posed some challenges for the company. With the recycling business growing, there was an enhanced need for adequately sorting feed streams and controlling quality of recycled resins. Thermal analysis instrumentation from NETZSCH is the solution to their problems.
The actors in the automotive supply chain are constantly forced to keep up with changing requirements in their industry. Higher fuel efficiency and technological innovations bring about environmental regulations that need to be considered in the design of automotive parts and components. Here, crucial material properties like thermal and mechanical resistance can be determined with thermal analysis.
Today, no industry lives and breathes more by the saying “Time is money” like the automotive industry. Car manufacturers pass tough improvement targets on to their suppliers of parts and components. Striving to meet constantly changing demands is often accompanied by new assessments of thermoplastic materials. Learn why thermal analysis is crucial in this process.
Thermoplastic materials have enjoyed increasing popularity in automotive manufacturing. Current environmental and economic concerns additionally raise the awareness of the various advantages of the material. Learn which materials are the most popular in today’s cars.
Did you know that motor vehicles were involved in 19 % of all product recalls listed by the Rapid Alert database in 2018? In the automotive industry, recent product failures concern the rupture and leakage of fuel tanks due to errors in the production process. It is crucial to find the cause of failure that can result from either design-, material- or production-related causes. Four thermal analysis instruments can answer many questions.
Plastics have significantly gained importance in automotive engineering. From being a metallic colossus in the 1950s, cars have been transformed to modern, lightweight versions of their former selves. The material does not only act as a design component. More importantly, thermoplastics are a booster for fuel efficiency due to its low weight. This evolution brings about severe challenges for suppliers and OEMs. They have to tackle five challenges to remain part of the future automotive ecosystem.
Plastics continue to be an innovative, indispensable and future-oriented material. 225,000 visitors from 165 countries informed themselves about recycling systems, sustainable raw materials and resource-saving processes at K show 2019 in Düsseldorf. Sustainability, industry 4.0 and automation solutions are the leading topics of the exhibitors.
Plastic recycling presents many challenges across the manufacturing workflow. One of the biggest challenges is controlling the uncertainty of feedstock quality. Variations in quality arise from mixtures of different polymer types in the recycling process. This is a step-by-step guide for the quality control of recycled plastics with the NETZSCH DSC 214 Polyma.
