Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing has become a constant in our product design and development cycles and is debuting in more and more new products. At NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing, we see more and more customers in the field of Additive Manufacturing using our equipment to select materials and optimize their processes. That is why we have been busy preparing this special video series and are excited to finally launch “Material Science in Additive Manufacturing”.
Rheology studies the deformation and flow of fluids. Traditionally, capillary rheometers have been used to measure the shear viscosity and elasticity of viscous materials at high shear rates. Learn why you need a capillary rheometer and what data you can obtain.
Powder Bed Fusion (PBF), often called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), is one of the most used Additive Manufacturing technologies to produce structural plastic parts. In this article, we explain the process principle and materials used in the SLS process.
