Materials Testing

Materials Testing

Methods

  • Light microscopy
  • Scanning electron microscopy
  • Hardness measurement
  • Chemical analyses of materials
  • X-ray inspections (2D, μCt)
  • Fluorescent dye penetrant testing
  • Residual stress measurements by x-ray
  • Exposure and corrosion tests
     

Applications

  • Examination of macrostructures and microstructures
  • Determination of material strength at macrostructure and microstructure levels
  • Evaluation of casting, additive manutacturing and forming processes
  • Evaluation of manufacturing processes
  • Surface roughness measurements
  • Fractography
  • Non-destructive material testing
  • Testing of chemical resistance and environmental testing
     

Method Development

  • Cross-sector and cross-material materials testing
  • Creation of specifications
  • Consulting on QA measures
  • Development of incoming inspections
  • Consulting on material selection and optimisation
