Material Science in Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing has matured over the last decades and has become a constant in our product design and development cycles and is debuting in more and more new products. At NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing, we see more and more customers in the field of Additive Manufacturing using our equipment to select materials and optimize their processes. Learn more about Additive Manufacturing in our articles and videos!

While the general public thinks of 3D printing as one single process, the industry is very well aware of the variety and the trade-offs in regards to mechanical performance, durability and surface finish to name just a few. There is no perfect, “one-process-fits-all” solution.

At NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing, we see more and more customers in the field of Additive Manufacturing using our equipment to select materials and optimize their processes. That is why we have been busy creating articles and videos around the material science of the 7 AM technologies.

Basics of the 7 Additive Manfacturing Technologies

NETZSCH_Week 6_Additive Manufacturing

The focus of the video series is on understanding the different Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies, process principles, materials, benefits and advantages, including where the different technologies and processes are applied in industry today.

Advanced Material Science in Additive Manufacturing

In the advanced section, we will dive deeper and look at the underlying material science as well as the methods suitable to analyze the materials and to optimize processes:

  • More material and process-related content
  • Select suitable thermoanalytical and rheological analysis methods
  • Understand the resulting part properties based on material and process

Our blog series : Focus on SLS ‒ material properties of PA12 powder

Warpage SLS TMA NETZSCH

We take a closer look at the Additive Manufacturing technology Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and share the results of measuring important material properties of SLS PA12 powder with and without fillers as well as 3D-printed parts.

How to Study the Isothermal Crystallization Behavior of SLS Powder Using DSC

Estimating Warpage of Selective Laser Sintering Parts Using Thermomechanical Analysis

NETZSCH interviews Additive Manufacturing Experts

In free webinars, Dr. Natalie Rudolph chats with experts from both academia and industry about their work and research with Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies to answer some of the pressing questions we received from our viewers of the Basics series. They answer those questions and share important insights and knowledge.

3D Printing Myths Explained

NETZSCH 3D Printing Myths Explained Drying ABS

We took your questions related to common 3D printing issues and categorized them into what we call 3D printing myths – common concerns and sometimes misconceptions of this industry.

We talk about toxic fumes, perfect printing temperatures, warpage and much more.
