Metal Additive Manufacturing and the Need for Reliable Thermophysical Property Data

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.

NETZSCH EPS – A New and Affordable Standard Material for Testing Thermal Conductivity with HFM Instruments

The heat flow meter (HFM) method is mainly used to test thermal conductivity and thermal resistance of insulation samples. It is not an absolute method, therefore, the heat flow meter output needs to be calibrated with a standard material. NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH has recently qualified its own factory standard for calibration and validation of heat flow … Read more
