Pioneers in rheology: Anton Paar at AERC 2014
Every year engineers, scientists, educators and researcher from all over the world converge to share ideas and advance their knowledge in rheology – at the Annual European Rheology Conference in Karlsruhe, Germany. Naturally, Anton Paar, the world market leader in rheometry, is a major sponsor and an integral part of this world-renowned event.
This year, at the 9th AERC, which took place from April 8 – 11, Anton Paar left a particularly good impressions on visitors – with an outstanding booth in the industrial exhibition area that highlighted the company’s latest innovation: The MCR 702 TwinDrive rheometer, the first and only system featuring two drives and transducers, opening up entirely new testing possibilities such as the microscopical investigation of sheared yet unmoving structures. This is possible because of the system’s capacity for counter-rotation, which produces a stagnation plane in the sheared sample.
Possibilities such as this, together with many more features of the future-proof MCR rheometer series, were presented and met with considerable interest at Anton Paar’s AERC booth. This again confirms that Anton Paar’s portfolio is a true haven for rheological pioneers.
