Materialography

MATERIAL TESTING AND DAMAGE ANALYSIS

Optimise your processes with informative analyses by means of light and scanning electron microscopy, spectroscopy and all other important analysis methods:
Whether layer thickness measurement, hardness measurement or weld seam inspection: whenever quantitative and qualitative statements about the characteristics of material are required, materialography is the appropriate analysis method for material testing and damage analysis. Our microscopic and spectroscopic analyses help you to characterise materials, check production processes, prevent damage, find the causes if damage occurs and optimise processes in product development.
