Material analyses

In our in-house laboratory for investigating the structural strength and various material properties, a wide variety of materials are systematically examined for their behaviour with regard to static and dynamic loads.

Thanks to our highly qualified staff, we can carry out the following tests:

Non-destructive testing

Our staff is qualified and certified in accordance with ISO 9712 and is therefore able to carry out fluorescent magnetic particle testing (MT), dye penetrant testing (PT) and ultrasonic testing (UT).
Ultrasonic testing via phased array or non-destructive testing of hardened surface layers (CHD) can be used to meet the latest technological requirements.

Technical component cleanliness TecSa

With the analysis of the technical component cleanliness, potential negative impairments in later operation can be proactively minimised. The implementation is carried out according to internationally known standards such as VDA 19.1 or ISO 16232 and thus ensures the consistently high quality of our products.

Hardness test

We can carry out hardness tests according to Vickers (ISO 6507), Brinell (ISO 6506) and Rockwell (ISO 6508) both on our stationary systems and on-site as mobile components. This allows the surface hardness of components with a length of up to 10 m to be tested.

Degree of purity

The functional properties of a material are largely dependent on its inclusions. In the microscopic examination, the smallest inclusions in the µm range are evaluated, whereas in the macroscopic evaluation, significantly larger inclusions in the mm range are taken into account.

The corresponding structure of metallic materials can be analysed both qualitatively and quantitatively by means of targeted preparation and microscopic processes in order to obtain far-reaching insights into the processing of the material.
