Critical information needed to prevent another failure
Understanding why something failed is needed to make effective decisions and prevent more failures. Failure analysis analyzes broken parts, providing details about how and why they failed. The use of laboratory equipment provides information not otherwise available.
Our philosophy towards failure analysis differs from most laboratories. We call it “chasing leads” and each step of our investigation changes based upon the findings from previous stages. Our objective is to provide as much information possible towards understanding and preventing future failures, not follow a prescribed formula.
Equally important is that our reports are clear, to the point and in no uncertain terms. Below are three case study reports providing examples of what you can expect.
Metallurgical failure analysis
Metallurgical failure analysis incorporates lab-based equipment to analyze and explain why a component failed. Our analysis services provide evidence that can reveal the cause of failure, including:
