Before we dive into the material science of processing materials with different Additive Manufacturing technologies, we introduce common material groups, distinct molecular structures of material classes as well as discuss other materials used for non-technical applications.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing has matured over the last decades and has become a constant in our product design and development cycles and is debuting in more and more new products. At NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing, we see more and more customers in the field of Additive Manufacturing using our equipment to select materials and optimize their processes. Learn more about Additive Manufacturing in our articles and videos!
In 2020, we started our “Material Science in Additive Manufacturing” video series as we faced an increasing interest from the industry to perfect their 3D printing processes and outcomes. First, we focused on understanding the 7 different Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies. In the advanced section, we will dive deeper and look at the underlying material science as well as the methods suitable to analyze the materials and to optimize processes
