The highly experienced collaborators of our well-equipped and modern materials laboratory can take up many challenges and will successfully accomplish complex tasks.

We can offer our competencies and support clients in the development and optimisation of metallic materials, determination of their properties and damage examination. Other our long standing experience in the field, we employ the following examination methods:

 

  • Metallography
  • Mechanical-technological materials tests
  • Optical and scanning electron microscopy (ESEM/EDS)
  • Various analytical procedures
  • Non-destructive materials testing

Examples for examination methods

2578

Innovative techniques and modern processes

2579

Checking on an internal default using ultrasound

2580

Scanning electron microscopy of e.g. a fractured surface

2582

Hardness testing for to evaluate previous tempering or coating

2584

Determination of elastic or plastic material properties by means of incremental strain gauge during tensile testing
