New ebook: Thermal Analysis and Rheology in Polymer Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a transformative manufacturing technology that builds three-dimensional objects by adding material layer by layer, based on a digital 3D model or computer-aided design (CAD) file. Unlike traditional subtractive manufacturing methods, which involve cutting material from a solid block, AM is an additive process that offers several advantages, making it increasingly popular in various industries.

The importance of AM in polymer processing is closely linked to its capability of fabricating complex and customized polymer structures with precision. Material characterization by means of thermal analysis and rheology plays a critical role in ensuring the quality and functionality of AM-produced polymer parts.

Discover the secrets behind AM's game-changing capabilities!

The newly released ebook by our Division Manager Polymer, Dr.-Ing. Natalie Rudolph, delves deep into the heart of AM, unveiling the power of reliable material characterization techniques, specifically thermal analysis and rheology.

What's inside?

Explore various thermal analysis methods like DSC, TGA, TMA, LFA and DMA!

Dive into the world of rheology with rotational, oscillation and capillary rheometry, as NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing is the only company on the market who offers all rheological methods!

Learn how these techniques shape the behavior of materials in AM processes like Powder Bed Fusion, Material Extrusion, Vat Photopolymerization and more.

Who should read it?

If you're in the fields of AM, material science or engineering, this book is your guide to gaining insights into how material characterization - namely thermal analysis and rheology -  influence the quality and performance of AM-produced parts.
