Selb – A new research partnership between NETZSCH Analyzing and Testing and the Swinburne University of Technology, Australia will see NETZSCH’s unique in-mould cure monitoring technology implemented in Swinburne’s Industry 4.0 carbon-fibre composite product Testlab. The facility, to be located in Melbourne’s East will be the world’s first industrial scale carbon-fibre composite manufacturing facility using a 3D printed “multilayer” approach.
Caffeine exists under 2 polymorphic forms (I and II). Compression of form I induces its transformation into form II, leading to changes in its properties. Heating with DSC ensures that caffeine is in the correct form.
How do nucleating agents influence the crystallization behavior of your polymer in the mold? To answer questions like these, the kinetics of the crystallization reaction is determined for mixtures of polypropylene with different nucleating agents. The results are used to carry out predictions on the product behavior for any temperature programs.
Kistler, the global market leader in dynamic pressure, force, torque and acceleration measurement technology, will share a stand with the NETZSCH Group at JEC World 2019 from 12 to 14 March in Paris. Visitors to stand R20 in hall 6 can see how technologies from the two companies complement each other ideally in plastic composites processing. Both product portfolios will be showcased, and a simulation will show how the combination of information from mold filling and characteristic material values represents a major step towards intelligent part production.
Spray-dried a-lactose monohydrate is a matrix of amorphous lactose in which lactose monohydrate crystals are embedded. Humidity has no influence on the crystal but amorphous lactose is very hygroscopic: in presence of humidity, it will transform into the crystalline form. This has consequences on the tableting properties of the substance. Thermal Analysis gives you first Information about the water content of your lactose and the consequences for its compressing properties.
Sealing elements undergo continuous changes in operating and environmental conditions. They are subject to natural, thermo-oxidative or mechanical aging processes and must be replaced after a certain time.
Rubber seals consist of elastomer composites that cannot process signals in their pure form. In many cases, however, signal processing would definitely be advantageous, since seals are often installed at crucial key positions in machines and or parts.
Billions of pounds of carpets are generated annually worldwide. A large percentage of which ends up in landfills is problematic because nylon is non-biodegradable.
Limitations in landfill capacity and the environmental impact of disposing of carpet waste in this manner have made recovering nylon from carpet waste an increasingly important enterprise.
The glass transition of lactose is in direct relation with the stickiness and the flowability of powders containing it. This in turn influences the processing.
