A Simple Way to Evaluate and Manage Material Data

Knowledge of the thermal properties of the material is crucial for producing thermoplastic parts. However, materials are not always delivered with sufficient information on all properties. Thermal analysis instruments are suitable to find the most important parameters by yourself. But the instrument is only the first step. The software is equally important. Here are two examples how Proteus® can help achieve faster results.

How Thermal Analysis can unlock Nature’s Secrets

Amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) is the amorphous and least stable polymorph of calcium carbonate. ACC is extremely unstable under normal conditions and is found for example in sea urchins and corals. The influence of ACC on the outstanding macromechanical properties of Echinoderm calcite is unknown. In this paper Thermal Analysis methods were used to investigate the thermal stability of sea urchin spines.

How UV-light Exposure Times Affect Component Properties in Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) has been around for several years. The main application for a long time was prototyping in the early stages of product development. Recently, new technologies like Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) are shaking up the AM sector. Using DLS and a two-stage dual-curing process, 3D printing is now being considered for mass production of parts since it has become considerably faster and the final product shows improved mechanical characteristics.

Common Causes of Failure of Automotive Thermoplastics

NETZSCH_Automotive_ThermalAnalysis

Failure of injection-molded thermoplastic parts appear in a wide range of forms. Often, the selected material or the production process of parts and components are the cause of the problem. Whenever faulty parts leave the machine, it is important to find the underlying cause of the failure. We selected two common failures of thermoplastics and show how thermal analysis can help determine the cause of failure.
