A critical step in evaluating engineering materials is microstructural analysis. Our Metallurgical Lab technicians perform sectioning, mounting, polishing, and examination of metallographic specimens. This facility supports our engineers by providing insight and valuable microstructural data. Such information can be used for product improvements, for expert testimony in failure analyses, or to explain the mechanical behavior of tested materials.
Using a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) with Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) capabilities provides us a quick and simple technique to obtain semi-quantitative elemental analysis of samples.
We have upgraded and digitized our existing Optical Microscopes as well. This allows us to send information to customers instantaneously via electronic connections and has streamlined data processing and improved efficiency.
