Applications Measurements 

Our Expertise

The NETZSCH Thermal Analysis Applications Laboratories are a proficient partner for nearly all thermal analysis issues. Our involvement in your projects begins with painstaking sample preparation and continues through meticulous examination and interpretation of the measurement results. Our diverse methods and over 30 different state-of-the-art measuring stations will provide ready solutions for all your special questions. Customers of our laboratory services stem from a wide range of large companies in industries such as chemical, automotive, electronics, air/space travel, racing, and polymer and ceramics. 

The Advantage to You

You will receive high-precision measurement results and valuable interpretations from us in the shortest possible time.

This will enable you to exactly specify new materials and components before actual deployment, minimize risks of failure, and gain decisive advantages over your competitors. For production problems, we can work with you to analyze causal issues and work out solution concepts. The relatively low expense of investment in our test measurements and services will pay off by greatly reducing your down time and reject rates. In addition, you will be able to increase the satisfaction of your existing customers and to win new ones.
