In this Video our Business Field Manager Alexander Frenzl talked about the “Digital Transformation” in the ceramics industry with Susan Sutton from BNP Media for Ceramic Industry Magazine!
We created a very valuable tool for all process engineers throughout the world of technical ceramics manufacturing.
The database system for thermal analysis by NETZSCH, called Identify, has now (from Proteus® analysis version 8.0 or higher) already more than 2000 database entries available.
Furthermore, Identify can now be used with combined TGA+DSC, TGA-c-DTA® and STA measurements, which allows for material identification with greater certainty.
AutoEvaluation by NETZSCH is a very helpful tool for evaluation of thermoanalytical measurements. The entire measurement is evaluated by AutoEvaluation automatically and autonomously (not via pre-defined macro!) – with only one mouse click – and just within a second. AutoEvaluation is available for DSC, TGA and now also for STA measurements. Furthermore, the adaptability of AutoEvaluation is adressed.
When managers of companies today talk about “digitization”, “industry 4.0” or “digital transformation”, they often limit themselves to what is so important for many companies: increasing their own efficiency – increasing their own productivity – optimizing profits by reducing costs. In short, in most cases, it is a matter of optimizing your own internal processes with the help of digital tools.
Of course: Optimized processes are the guarantee for the effective survival of a company – but isn’t there a more important factor for success than your own process reliability? Is the internal optimization of a company not a matter of course anyway? Are companies that do NOT take care of their processes still able to survive today?
I think it must be a matter of course for our customers that WE as a company have done our homework. Doesn’t the innovation focus of a modern company has to lie in this question already?
“What added value can I offer my customers from digitization?”
For the absolute measurement of thermal conductivity on low-conductive materials the so called “GUARDED HOT PLATE-Method” (GHP) is used. The method is based on a steady-state heat-flow maintained through a material.
Even if those instruments are very complex, NETZSCH found a way to provide the simplest way of absolute thermal conductivity measurements to the industry. The newest SMART MODE Software for GHP’s is a milestone for simplicity to this method.
