Applied Technical Services’ metal analysis lab provides metallurgical services that benefit numerous industries. Our lab takes a closer look at different metals’ material properties, giving clients a comprehensive understanding of their product.
ATS metallurgists and engineers conduct thorough assessments according to applicable standards, such as ASTM E384, ASTM E3, ASTM E10, ASTM B487, ASTM E18, ASTM A247, ASTM E112, ASTM B748, equivalent ISO standards, and specialized procedures. Our analysis lab conducts tests on a wide array of materials, including:
We evaluate these material’s integrity, purity, and durability through numerous metallurgical evaluations. Our testing and analysis capabilities include:
These tests allow us to gather detailed information on material quality and makeup. We can integrate our metallurgical services with our dimensional, chemical, mechanical, and failure analysis capabilities for a more detailed report on a material’s properties.
Metallurgical Failure Analysis
Our metallurgical capabilities also allow us to help clients with failure analysis. ATS experts regularly investigate component and system failures to determine the root cause of issues associated with formability, corrosion, cracking, wear, and more. We conduct failure analyses on a wide array of materials, such as stainless steels, alloy steels, titanium alloys, aluminum alloys, copper alloys, superalloys, ceramics, plastics, and glass. Our failure analysis techniques include visual inspection, hardness testing, SEM/EDS, optical fractography, x-ray diffraction, mechanical testing, metallographic techniques, and chemical analysis.
If the scope of analysis requires additional testing, we can consult our experts in mechanical engineering, forensics, and dimensional inspection to gain a comprehensive understanding of the failure’s root cause.
