Estimating Warpage of Selective Laser Sintering Parts Using Thermomechanical Analysis

Warpage SLS TMA NETZSCH

The plastics used in Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) have a higher thermal expansion when compared with other materials. Therefore, it is important to know how the dimensions of an SLS part change at different temperatures during the build and during use. The higher the thermal expansion coefficient, the more prone are the parts to warpage or curling and the build-up of residual stresses. Learn more!

Metal Additive Manufacturing and the Need for Reliable Thermophysical Property Data

Additive Manufacturing (AM) encompasses a variety of technologies suitable for producing components from liquid, solid or powder feedstocks. Selective Laser Melting (SLM), a powder-bed fusion process, has become a commonly used AM process for rapid prototyping and component manufacturing using metals, alloys and, to a lesser extent, ceramics. Learn more about SLM, suitable materials and how to optimize input parameters for improved product quality using Thermal Analysis.

Mobile Air Conditioners to Prevent an Infection With the “Coronavirus” – An Effective Solution?

Mobile Air Conditioning Unit _ Coronavirus_NETZSCH

Closed indoor spaces are a problem due to the spread of SARS-CoV-2 via aerosols, especially in winter, when cold temperatures limit the ability to air rooms. A body of experts investigates the extent to which particle concentrations in enclosed indoor spaces can decreased with the help of highly effective indoor filters. The smoke density test device from NETZSCH TAURUS Instrument was also used in this context. Read more in the article!
