15' webinar - ‘How to characterize a polymer material’
Additive Manufacturing (AM) simplifies the production of complex, material-efficient and lighter parts, optimises flow applications and makes freedom of form possible. At Sirris, we not only bridge the gap between technology and industry and guide you through every step in AM, but we can also help you with the quality of your AM process or product.
Sirris can help you to guarantee the quality of your AM process or product, by:
- Identifying the variables to be controlled to guarantee the quality of your product throughout the AM value chain, including heat treatment step.
- Helping to exploit the available data for the purpose of traceability, understanding drifts and their prediction.
- Supporting your quality process with our AM oriented laboratories: Materials Characterisation - thermal analysis & powder properties, Heat treatment lab, metrology lab.
To get you acquainted with these possibilities, our services and (new) equipment, Sirris organises this series of short webinars, typically consisting of a brief introduction, concrete workshop videos, showing examples and case studies, to end with an open Q & A session with our experts.
In our fourth webinar we focus on polymeric materials in additive manufacturing, which can be used in the form of resin, powder or wire. We will introduce what insight we can have into the thermomechanical characteristics of a polymer, in order to improve its processing by AM.
What to expect? Be prepared for a 15-minute presentation, a 5-minute video and ca. 10 minutes of open discussion.
Interested in the bigger picture of quality of AM? On 31 May 2023, Sirris will be organising a masterclass on the topic: this advanced masterclass will answer specific questions from quality specialists or material experts who wish to investigate the field in more detail.
