Schaum-Keramik in Großserie

Keramische Schäume haben das Potenzial den Spagat zwischen den mannigfaltigen Anforderungen an Hochtemperatur-Isolation zu schlagen. Aus dieser Motivation gelang es Morgan Advanced Materials Haldenwanger GmbH ein kostengünstiges und großseriengeeignetes Verfahren zur Herstellung von Schaum-Keramik zu entwickeln. Auf dem Weg zur Großserie half die NETZSCH-Software KINETICS NEO.

Optimize the Curing of Composites with Kinetics Neo

BLACKS Composites SRL and NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing made the next milestone in its already proven Partnership: Improving the curing of a CFRP bike rim with a simultaneous drastic reduction of the cycle time during cross-linkage. The bike rim was processed through hand lay-up technology and a subsequent autoclave curing. Saving cycle time with a better curing is not possible? It is! Based on the data of a differential scanning calorimeter and the simulation software Kinetics Neo, the cycle time was reduced by 46% compared to the cure cycle suggested by the material data sheet. Additionally, a higher degree of cure could be achieved to meet the target curing and avoiding overheating effects of the product.

Clever Tool for Short Cooling Times

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.

Update JEC 2019: Kistler and NETZSCH showcase their collaboration

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.

Ug-Wert von Isolierglas: Messen geht vor Rechnen

Alexander Dupp bei der Messung des Ug-Wertes einer Isolierverglasung.

Unsere Ergebnisse zeigen, dass 95 % aller deutschen Isolierglashersteller den deklarierten Ug-Wert bei Neuproduktion einhalten und damit doch eine sehr gute Qualität liefern.
Probleme und eklatante Abweichungen stellen wir meist bei Isoliergläsern aus dem osteuropäischen Ausland fest. Auch Gläser aus dem südeuropäischen Ausland halten in vielen Fällen nicht das, was sie sollen (deklariert 0,5 W/(m²K), gemessen über 1,0 W/(m²K)).

How does water change the properties of Lactose?

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.
