The DKG expert committee 6 "Materials and process diagnostics" (DKG FA 6) is a forum for the exchange of experience on test methods introduced in industry and research, as well as for the transfer of knowledge on new test equipment and trends in ceramics-related material and process diagnostics.
The DKG FA 6 is aimed in particular at managers and specialists from testing laboratories in the ceramics industry and in ceramics-oriented research and educational institutions. In addition, ceramic users and representatives of test equipment manufacturers are also welcome.

DKG FA 6 focuses on established and new test methods for:

  • Assessment of raw materials and auxiliaries,
  • Process control in ceramic manufacturing,
  • Determination of mechanical, electrical, dielectric, thermal, tribological and optical material properties,
  • Characterization of phase inventory and development, chemical composition, microstructure and surface of green and sintered ceramics,
  • In-situ process monitoring and materials characterization,
  • Non-destructive and in-process testing of components.

Information will be provided on ceramics-related standardization activities, current interlaboratory tests and reference materials, as well as innovations in the development of testing equipment. The DKG FA 6 invites to present newly developed measurement and evaluation methods, as well as to present and discuss open material and process diagnostic issues. It not only provides a platform for the exchange of experience and information, but also opens up the possibility of initiating the development of test equipment, test standards and reference materials and organizing interlaboratory tests.
