The failure of metal components typically involve various types of corrosion and mechanical damage, combinations of environmental conditions to which they are exposed and mechanical stresses that they experience.
The cost of failed materials can be staggering. Determining the cause of the failure and developing a solution is an important cost saving step in any manufacturing process. Our metallurgical staff has had extensive exposure to manufacturing processes across a broad cross section of industries.
When you experience a failure in a component, system, or structure, you need to know what happened so you can develop a solution. Our staff will work with you and employ the following test methods to determine the cause of failure:
