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 to Control the Quality of Recycled Plastic Materials

Plastic recycling presents many challenges across the manufacturing workflow. One of the biggest challenges is controlling the uncertainty of feedstock quality. Variations in quality arise from mixtures of different polymer types in the recycling process. This is a step-by-step guide for the quality control of recycled plastics with the NETZSCH DSC 214 Polyma.

Smart Thermal Analysis (Part III): Automatic Evaluation of DIL and TMA Curves

AutoEvaluation by NETZSCH is an intelligent software functionality which can automatically and autonomously (not via pre-defined macro!) evaluate thermoanalytical measurement curves. This is not only helpful but also time-saving! AutoEvaluation was introduced for DSC, TGA and STA and is now available also for dL signals from Dilatometer (DIL) and Thermomechanical analyzers (TMA)!

Smart Thermal Analysis (Part I): Automatic Evaluation of DSC, TGA and STA Measurements

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.
