Optimization of Extrusion, Injection Molding and 3D Printing Manufacturing Processes for the Automotive Industry

Today we have the pleasure to interview Jacopo Tirillò, Full Professor in Materials Science and Technology at the Department of Chemical Engineer Materials Environment at Sapienza University of Rome.

In this customer success story Jacopo Tirillò, Full Professor in materials science and technology at the Department of Chemical Engineer Materials Environment at Sapienza University of Rome talks about his research work regarding the development of an eco-friendly composite material for automotive applications exploiting a fully bio-based polyamide. He also gives insights in his investigations in the field of Additive Manufacturing and process automation for hybrid and composite materials and his work on 3D printing of low-filled basalt. 

He has more than 15 years of experience in the field of materials science and technology documented by over 170 scientific publications. Prof. Jacopo Tirillò will give us insights in his research work at the new thermal analysis laboratory in Latina: he is working in the field of polymers and polymer composites to optimize manufacturing processes such as extrusion, injection molding and 3D printing using by means of NETZSCH thermal analysis instruments.

Prof. Jacopo Tirillò

„Our Thermal Analysis Laboratory aims to provide a service package to both Academia and Industries which includes the high-standard quality instruments provided by NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing along with the know-how of professors, researchers and technicians. The main goal is to achieve an interconnected and efficient network with both universities and industries to ensure highest research quality and a fruitful growth of both manufacturing processes and products with a view to the economic development of the region and more generically of the country. Currently, we are working with companies like Bridgestone, ABB, Treves-Roi, Stellantis, ESA, ASI and AVIO Space – just to name a few.“
