In-the-field metallography techniques
We perform in-situ examinations on large components and systems or to meet special requirements with respect to non-destructive evaluation of microstructures. In addition to applying replication techniques we carry out surface preparations, light microscopic examinations and hardness tests (rebound method) on the surfaces of the objects to be examined.
Fluorescent dye penetrant test (PT)
The fluorescent dye penetrant test is a method used to detect defects which open up to the surface. It can also be applied in-situ independent of the material and size of the component. The evaluation and documentation are done using UV light. Detected defects are evaluated in a nominal-actual value comparison and displayed in a test log.
