We are excited to share the news that NETZSCH Instruments NA is hosting the 35th International Thermal Conductivity Conference (ITCC) and the 23rd International Thermal Expansion Symposium (ITES) in September 2021. Learn more!
We are extending the warranty for new instrument purchases!
We put together four bundles that include a range of accessories and software solutions!
Sporting goods and toys for kids or pets are often made of flexible plastics. Some examples are sensory chewing toys, action figurines as well as balls of various kinds. A common polymer used for these applications is PVC (polyvinylchloride), because it can be made softer and more flexible by adding plasticizers. Therefore, they can evaporate or be rinsed out by saliva or sweat. Learn how to determine detect and identify plasticizers!
In the first article of our Big Data series, we have already given you a first insight into the term Big Data and pointed out which benefits can be generated by data processing for production and especially for thermal analysis. In this next article, we would like to introduce the term Data Science in more detail and show some of its common methods.
Building regulations in various countries require minimum thermal conductivity (U-values) for different parts of a new building. This refers to anything from external walls, floors, roofs, windows and doors. Guarded Hot Plates (GHPs) determine these important values. Read here how!
Zum 20. Mal findet aktuell in Würzburg das Kolloquium „Gemeinsame Forschung in der Klebtechnik“ statt. 230 Teilnehmer diskutieren gemeinsam ihre Forschungsergebnisse, Neuentwicklungen und Herausforderungen. Aus den vielen interessanten und informativen Vorträgen am ersten Tag werden vier zukunftsweisende Trends sichtbar.
Bringing cost, material, production process and quality successfully together is one of the key objectives in the injection molding industry. If the production process is not correct or if the material does not adhere to the specified requirements, low quality and thus scrap production is the consequence. Ideally, all of these four factors should be able to be managed in order to avoid scrap production. Thermal analysis methods offer valued approaches.
Thermoplastic parts can fail. This is no secret. However, when it has happened it is crucial to find out the reason for the failure of a part. Here is a short list of thermal analysis techniques and which questions they can answer in your failure analysis.
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.
