Our extensive selection of services not only includes advice on materials processing but also metallurgy and metallurgical examination, mechanical and fatigue testing, SEM scanning electron microscopy, EDXA energy dispersive X-ray analysis optical microscopy, expert witness, failure analysis and problem solving.
Prototype manufacture and development
Our extensive friction welding expertise means we can provide advice and support across a broad range of areas including analysis, geometry recommendations, material selection and cost saving options, metallurgical assessment, pre and post weld processing and testing.
Conducted in accordance with British Standard:BS15620:2000, a band test development approach is employed to offer an in-built production safety margin. This is underpinned by our accumulation of more than 50 years of process and metallurgical experience. A high, low and mid parameter starting point is estimated and the program of development will establish the mid parameter, thereby building in a production safety margin.
A comprehensive choice of assessments is available and these offer bend, hardness and micro hardness analysis as well as impact, non destructive and tensile testing.
