AutoEvaluation by NETZSCH is an intelligent software functionality which can automatically and autonomously (not via pre-defined macro!) evaluate thermoanalytical measurement curves. This is not only helpful but also time-saving! AutoEvaluation was introduced for DSC, TGA and STA and is now available also for dL signals from Dilatometer (DIL) and Thermomechanical analyzers (TMA)!
AutoEvaluation for DIL/TMA offers three sub-functions for the following, frequent applications:
- Metal Melting Temperatures and EnthalpiesThe enthalpy of fusion of a substance, also known as latent heat, is a measure of the energy input, typically heat, which is necessary to convert a substance from solid to liquid state. The melting point of a substance is the temperature at which it changes state from solid (crystalline) to liquid (isotropic melt).Melting (automatic evaluation of the onset of the step of dL due to melting)
- Glass Transition/Softening (automatic evaluation of the onset of a Temperatura di transizione vetrosaLa transizione vetrosa è una delle più importanti proprietà chimico-fisiche dei materiali amorfi e semi-cristallini, come, ad esempio, vetri, metalli (amorfi), polimeri, ingredienti farmaceutici e alimentari e definisce l’intervallo di temperatura in cui le proprietà meccaniche die materiali variano da duro e fragile a più morbido, malleabile o gommoso.glass transition and the maximum of dL during softening)
- SinteringSintering is a production process for forming a mechanically strong body out of a ceramic or metallic powder.
