How to Detect Harmful Substances in Sporting Goods and Toys

NETZSCH Sporting Goods Toys

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!

From Big Data to Smart Data

NETZSCH Data Science Big Data

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.

Reduce Scrap Production with Thermal Analysis

NETZSCH_Reduce_Scrap2

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.
