While the general public thinks of 3D printing as one single process, the industry is very well aware of the variety and the trade-offs in regards to mechanical performance, durability and surface finish to name just a few. There is no perfect, “one-process-fits-all” solution.
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. That is why we have been busy creating articles and videos around the material science of the 7 AM technologies.
Basics of the 7 Additive Manfacturing Technologies
The focus of the video series is on understanding the different Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies, process principles, materials, benefits and advantages, including where the different technologies and processes are applied in industry today.
Advanced Material Science in Additive Manufacturing
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:
- More material and process-related content
- Select suitable thermoanalytical and rheological analysis methods
- Understand the resulting part properties based on material and process
Our blog series : Focus on SLS ‒ material properties of PA12 powder
We take a closer look at the Additive Manufacturing technology Selective Laser SinteringSintering is a production process for forming a mechanically strong body out of a ceramic or metallic powder. Sintering (SLS) and share the results of measuring important material properties of SLS PA12 powder with and without fillers as well as 3D-printed parts.
NETZSCH interviews Additive Manufacturing Experts
In free webinars, Dr. Natalie Rudolph chats with experts from both academia and industry about their work and research with Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies to answer some of the pressing questions we received from our viewers of the Basics series. They answer those questions and share important insights and knowledge.
3D Printing Myths Explained
We took your questions related to common 3D printing issues and categorized them into what we call 3D printing myths – common concerns and sometimes misconceptions of this industry.
We talk about toxic fumes, perfect printing temperatures, warpage and much more.
