Sensors for investigating the in-situ polymerization to PA6 – Fundamentals and Application

Polymer and composite manufacturers, due to the complexity of the processes, face an increasing demand for sensor technologies in different cases to monitor the material behavior and therefore control the manufacturing in real time.

Polymer and composite manufacturers, due to the complexity of the processes, face an increasing need for sensor technologies to monitor material behavior and then control manufacturing in real time.

In this webinar, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology and NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing will discuss how they have been investigating sensitive in-situ polymerization to create structural thermoplastic composite parts in order to overcome some of the problems of using sensor systems. They will show new methods and sensor systems that are capable of investigating this sensitive material transition and will show a dielectric system that is more sensitive than a typical state-of-the-art lab setup in monitoring in-situ polymerization.

By signing up to this webinar, attendees will:

  • learn the principles of dielectric measurements and learn how dielectric sensors can be used to investigate and control manufacturing processes in real time
  • see re-developed dielectric analysis and new in-mold sensors for ultra-fast and high-quality measurements of the material behavior inside the invisible closed-mold environment.

Powering the future through nano-characterisation

Batteries are used in a wide range of the electronic devices which are taken for granted in our daily life. Li-ion batteries, in particular, have been a key enabling technology for certain consumer electronics over the past decade and are also considered vital for the further development of EVs (Electrical Vehicles).

The presence of impurities and contaminants in the material used in the production of Li-ion batteries can have catastrophic impacts on the finished battery products with incidents of such failures having been widely reported. As such, monitoring of the quality and cleanliness of materials throughout the production process is essential if contaminants are to be found and their sources controlled.

In addition to ensuring contaminants are not present, being able to characterise the microstructure in all parts of a battery is crucial for optimising the design of future devices as well as for failure analysis of existing designs. Improving the battery performance and lifetime (number of charge & discharge cycles) is one of the key obstacles for increased usage in relation to EVs.

In this webinar, we will discuss how the use of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) combined with Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) and Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) can be used to

·         Monitor materials quality throughout the production process

·         Investigate failure mechanisms and develop solutions

·         Characterise Li-based phases for next generation battery development

We will do this with reference to specific examples including cleanliness of powders used for production of electrode material. EBSD analysis of electrodes and Li detection in solid-state electrolytes using EDS.

Werkstoffprüfung 2019

Nur durch moderne Werkstoffprüftechnik, die Anwendung fortschrittlicher Messtechnik und die Datenerfassung und -auswertung mit neuesten Methoden können gleichermaßen ökologische und ökonomische Konstruktionen und die erforderliche Betriebssicherheit von Komponenten und Anlagen gewährleistet werden. Dies ist von essentieller Bedeutung, um hochtechnologische Produkte zu entwickeln, zu produzieren und zu vermarkten, und stellt somit eine wichtige Voraussetzung für die Sicherung unseres wirtschaftlichen Wohlstands dar. Neuerungen in der Normung von Prüfverfahren, eine ständige Weiterentwicklung im Bereich Qualitätsmanagement, eine solide Kenntnis der Messunsicherheit und eine konsequente Umsetzung der Konformitätsbewertung gewährleisten eine ausreichende Sicherheit und Reproduzierbarkeit bei der Kennwertermittlung und müssen kontinuierlich in die betrieblichen Abläufe in Prüflaboratorien einfließen.

Am 3. und 4. Dezember 2019 findet die alljährliche Tagung „Werkstoffprüfung“ im Edwin-Scharff-Haus in Neu-Ulm statt. Turnusgemäß wird sie von der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Materialkunde (DGM) organisiert. Inzwischen kann diese Tagungsreihe auf die lange Tradition von 36 Veranstaltungen zurückblicken. Zweifelsfrei hat sich „Die Werkstoffprüfung“ als maßgebliches Forum für die Präsentation und Diskussion der Fortschritte auf dem Gebiet der Charakterisierung von Werkstoffeigenschaften etabliert. Dies umfasst alle Werkstoffgruppen und ihre differenzierten Herstellungsverfahren ebenso wie die Absicherung der Eigenschaftsänderungen, die mit den einzelnen Bearbeitungsschritten einhergehen. Die Tagung stellt Fortschritte aus der gesamten Prüf- und Messtechnik sowie Problemstellungen der Werkstoffprüfung und deren Lösungen vor. Aussteller zeigen ihre Neuerungen und werden aktiv mit Kurzpräsentationen in das Vortragsprogramm eingebunden. Die Tagung ist über die mechanische und technologische Werkstoffprüfung hinaus offen für die Diskussion aller Prüfverfahren, mit denen Struktur- und Funktionseigenschaften von Werkstoffen und Bauteilen qualitativ beurteilt und quantitativ gemessen werden können.

Die Veranstaltung wendet sich an alle, die in Industrie und wissenschaftlichen Instituten mit der Prüfung und Charakterisierung von Werkstoffen und Bauteilen sowie mit der Schadensanalyse und Schadensvermeidung befasst sind. Jährlich vom Programmausschuss aktualisierte Themenschwerpunkte dienen dazu, klassische Themen und aktuelle Trends gleichermaßen abzubilden. Sie sind als Vorschläge für die Beitragseinreichung zu interpretieren, sollten aber nicht als thematische Einschränkung verstanden werden. Diese attraktive Themenvielfalt wird zusätzlich angereichert durch hochkarätig besetzte Plenarvorträge mit Übersichtscharakter.

Das Edwin-Scharff- Haus in Neu-Ulm ist in idealer Weise geeignet, der Tagung einen funktionellen und würdigen Rahmen zu geben und den Gedankenaustausch und die Vernetzung zu fördern. Bei der Gestaltung des Programms wird der Programmausschuss dafür Sorge tragen, dass dazu ausreichend Gelegenheit gegeben sein wird.

Seien Sie mit dabei! Ich verspreche Ihnen, es wird sich lohnen!

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans-Jürgen Christ
Vorsitzender des Programmausschusses
