Additive manufacturing with polymers

Additive manufacturing enables new developments across many industries, yet the relationship between process parameters to final material properties is difficult to study and not well understood.

NIST scientist, Anthony Kotula, and his team in the Polymer Process Group worked together with Thermo Fisher Scientific using a newly developed Rheo-Raman system.  This is solution that simultaneously runs rheology and Raman measurements from a single point. Their insights are shared in a webinar: Simultaneous rheology and Raman spectroscopy for characterization of semi-crystalline polymers in additive manufacturing.

View this complimentary webinar to hear Mr. Kotula explain how rheology and Raman spectroscopy together provides valuable insight into the conformation and mechanical transitions during additive manufacturing of semi-crystalline polymers.
