Hielscher Ultrasonics specializes in the design and manufacturing of high power ultrasonic homogenizers for lab, bench-top and production level. Ultrasonic power is an effective and energy-efficient means to apply high shear and intense stress to liquids, powder/liquid mixtures and slurries. This makes it a strong alternative to high shear mixers, high pressure homogenizers and agitated bead mills.Hielscher ultrasonic devices are in use worldwide as laboratory mixers, high shear mixing equipment, full-size in-line homogenizers or particle mills. The applications span mixing, dispersing, particle size reduction, extraction and chemical reactions.
Hielscher ultrasonic devices are used in the synthesis of nanomaterials as well as in the formulation of compounds and composites containing nanomaterials. This includes the use of ultrasonics during precipitation and the deagglomeration of nano-size materials, like metal oxides or carbon nanotubes.
Ultrasound is used in the formulation of paints and coatings for: emulsification of polymers dispersing and fine milling of pigments size reduction of .
Ultrasonic cleaning is an environmentally friendly alternative for the cleaning of continuous materials, such as wire and cable, tape or tubes. The effect of the cavitation generated by the ultrasonic power removes lubrication residues like oil or grease, soaps, stearates or dust.
NanoFocus AG is a developer, manufacturer, and distributor of measurement technology and software packages for the characterization of technical surfaces. The company has been active in this field since 1994. Our confocal optical 3D surface analysis tools offer perfect quality assurance, process control and manufacturing efficiency for all industries and applications. NanoFocus AG’s analysis systems allow high precision micro and nano scale 3D surface measurements. The innovative systems enable extremely fast, easy and contactless 3D measurements of topography, micro-geometry, roughness or other surface characteristics.
Materials Science Applications:
Optimizing functional properties if new surfaces and products:
Finding out in what way the structure of a material influences its properties and behaviour is the aim of materials science. High-resolution analyses of surfaces play an important role in determining relevant parameters like roughness, relection, tribological properties or the surface quality.
NanoFocus measurement systems guarantee analyses conform to international standards – for different measurement task and on all materials. Defined specifications are met and processes optimized. This means that costs are reduced while development times are shortened.
Non-contact 3D surface analyses independent of materials:
NanoFocus measurement systems enable the fast and reliable 3D surface analysis of nearly all materials – from metal, glass, ceramics, semi-conductors, polymers to organic materials. The confocal technology enables determining reliable measurement data independent of the degree of reflection of a surface. The optical method of the NanoFocus-technologies µsurf, µscan and µsprint also enables the non-destructive measurements of sensible surfaces at different stages of production and processing. The measurements of coated surfaces and the determination of layer thickness are also possible.
A previous sample preparation is not necessary. Real 3D data is available after only a few seconds which allows a qualitative as well as a quantitative evaluation of the surface. For the determination of relevant parameters NanoFocus offers comprehensive and powerful software solutions for the analysis of measurement data.
Examples of application:
NanoFocus measurement systems have proven themselves in many areas of materials science due their flexibility. Within only a few seconds they deliver exact and repeatable 3D measurement data of nearly all surfaces. That is why the NanoFocus-technology is ideal for user who wish to analyze different materials.
