NETZSCH and Rheology – The beating heart of production

Read here a testimonial of our new customer pro3dure medical (Iserlohn, Germany), who has chosen a Kinexus lab+ rotational rheometer by NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH.

The Analyzing & Testing Business Unit of the NETZSCH Group develops and manufactures a complete range of high-precision analytical instruments. These are used specifically for thermal analysis and the measurement of thermophysical properties. In January 2020, we acquired the rheology product line from Malvern Panalytical with a team of international specialists. Since then, the rheology division has also faced great success.

To expand our analytical capabilities and for quality assurance purposes, we acquired a Kinexus rheometer from NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH, Selb, Germany, in August of this year. After a thorough analysis of the market, we were drawn towards NETZSCH because our initial meeting and conversation the communication was outstanding. From the quotation to the installation of the device and thorough training of our employees by Mr. Torsten Remmler, everything was very professional and reliable. Since then, our employees have been using the rheometer for viscosity measurements of 3d printing materials, setting behavior of medical-grade silicones, UV reactivity and torsion tests of plastic samples. “The NETZSCH rheometer allows for extensive modular solutions. Thus, we have significantly expanded our analytical possibilities,” said Frank Gischer, Head of R&D at pro3dure medical GmbH. “We would like to welcome Mr. Remmler back here any time and look forward to an ongoing cooperation with NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH.”
