Material science goes digital

Material science goes digital

Until recently, polymer and polymer-based composite manufacturing required strict, costly, and time-consuming quality assurance. As of now, the situation has changed. The NETZSCH Group has come up with an innovative sensXPERT product that pushes the boundaries of intelligent plastics production by combining real-time material data from sensors with advanced analytics and ML algorithms.

Real-time process optimization

sensXPERT helps optimize plastics production, streamlines downstream quality control and generates transparency. Batch data, material deviations, climate factors, impurities – all are taken into account. The software helps reduce the error rate in plastic production, significantly increasing the efficiency of manufacturing operations.
