Due to the still limited number of available materials for the Selective Laser Sintering process, there is a constant demand for materials with different properties. The addition of any filler to SLS powder typically has an effect on the processing behavior. Today, we investigate the crystallization behavior of PA12 powder filled with copper spheres and flakes.
Popular materials for lightweight applications are glass and carbon fiber-reinforced plastics. The properties of the composite material are determined by the manufacturing process conditions. Therefore, it is crucial to know the curing state reached during manufacturing as well as the correlation between the glass transition temperature and degree of cure.
Significant efforts have been made to model and simulate the Selective Laser Sintering process as information about the temperature field in lower layers is difficult to measure. Learn how specific heat capacity can help!
Photopolymers have gained increased importance in many industries. Digital Light Synthesis (DLS), an Additive Manufacturing Technology, is a prime example for the usage of photopolymers. Learn why the NETZSCH Photo-DSC is a proven method to optimize the Additive Manufacturing process.

Additive Manufacturing (AM) encompasses a variety of technologies suitable for producing components from liquid, solid or powder feedstocks. Selective Laser Melting (SLM), a powder-bed fusion process, has become a commonly used AM process for rapid prototyping and component manufacturing using metals, alloys and, to a lesser extent, ceramics. Learn more about SLM, suitable materials and how to optimize input parameters for improved product quality using Thermal Analysis.
