ATS offers positive material identification and certification services also known as PMI Analysis and Certification Services. This Certification Service is critical to industries that are required to use high quality materials for manufactured products and components.
The aerospace and nuclear industries are examples of enterprises that are often required to have product certification ensuring critical components are manufactured with the most reliable materials for durability, longevity, and safety.
Failure Analysis and Material Sorting
Often during the failure analysis process, it is necessary to positively identify the materials used during manufacturing to verify their conformance to specifications. If inferior materials are used, products may fail and cause personal injury or asset losses. To avoid potential forensic investigation or litigation, it is incumbent to verify your materials and/or manufacturing processes.
As it is a nondestructive test method and can be conducted on site, PMI is also a very convenient way of conducting verification and sorting of materials in case of mix-ups.
