December 10, 2018. New Kinetics Neo version 2.1.2 is released. New crystallitazion analysis and several new usability features are added:

December 10, 2018. New user guide "How To: Analyze Cooling Crystallization of PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) by Nakamura Method Using Hoffman-Lauritzen Theory".

December 1, 2018. New short user guide "How To: Apply Kamal-Sourour Reaction Type to the Analysis of the Curing Reaction" is added to the Learn chapter.

November 15, 2018. Webinar on the optimization of sintering "Speed up your sintering process" (recorded video). Saving time and therefore money is a crucial factor when sintering a ceramic greenbody. Using Kinetics Neo, you are able to speed up your sintering process by up to 60%.

September 6, 2018. New Kinetiocs Neo version 2.0.1 is released. Several important features are added:

  • new model-free analysis method Dynamic Arrhenius for failure temperature during heating like Oxidation Onset Temperature (OOT);
  • new model-free analysis method Isothermal Arrhenius (ASTM E2070, method D) for time-to-event values like Oxidation-Induction Time (OIT);
  • new prediction Isothermal Lifetime for all reaction types; 
  • more new features and improvements. Check our Release History page to find out what is new in this version.

August 4-9, 2018. Conference of North American Thermal Analysis Society (NATAS). NETZSCH presents two talks on Kinetics Neo with the live demonstration of this software:

May 9, 2018New Kinetics Neo version 1.6.2 is released. The main new feature is the support of two new autocatalytical reaction types in model-based analysis including Kamal-Sourour reaction type. These reaction types are very important and widely used for analysing the curing process of thermosets.  
Check our Release History page to find out what is new in this version.

May 1-3, 2018. International Ceramics Expo Exhibition, Cleveland, USA. Please visit us at Booth 100. We will have live demo presentations of Kinetics Neo in the Product Showcase How to build a simulation model for your firing program on May 1st,  11am and May 3rd, 2pm. We will show you how to design your firing process optimally with data from thermal analysis and thermokinetic simulation. You’ll learn how to speed up your firing program by up to 60% by using NETZSCH Kinetics Neo with binder burnout, sintering shrinkage and thermal conductivity measurement information.

During each live demo you'll have the chance to WIN one of the two full versions of our Kinetics Neo software.

April 10-13, 2018. We are proud to present Kinetics Neo at the international Ceramitec Exhibition in Munich. Please visit us in Hall B6, booth #500. We will have live demo presentations of the software on April 10-12 at 3 pm and on April 11-13 at 11 am. During each live demo, you will have the chance to WIN one of the six full versions of our Kinetics Neo software.

February 28, 2018. New Kinetics Neo version 1.5.0 is released. The main new feature is the support of DSC with Diffusion Control including TTT diagram. It is very important for application of curing processes, like curing of thermoset resins.
Check our Release History page to find out what is new in this version.

New user guides about how to get started with the modelling of Diffusion Controlled processes and the creation of TTT diagram are added to our "Learn" page.

February 26, 2018. Official video of our well attended webinar "How kinetic simulation can improve your thermosetting curing process" is published. This webinar from the Composite Series focuses on the use of Kinetics Neo to simulate the progress of the underlying curing reaction. How to create the necessary data using thermal analysis methods and how to build up a kinetic model will be shown. In the conclusion, predictions for different processing scenarios will be made and the impacts on the curing will be presented.
