Do you need
What we have
  • To know the root cause of why your component, structure or plant failed?
  • To know what causes your decrease in production yield?
  • To know whether your component or structure sustained damage during operations that exceeded the operational limits?
  • A second opinion, an independent expert or report on failure analysis?
  • Recommendations to prevent failure in the future?
  • A Test House specialized in material research and engineering failure analysis on complex components
  • Over 60 years of experience in aerospace and defence industry that strives for the highest safety standards
  • Extensive knowledge on failure modes of materials with a specialization in:
    • structural materials
    • high temperature materials (Ni-, Co- and Ti-alloys)
    • composites
  • Equipment for mechanical testing, materials analysis and fractography, which enable full analysis capabilities:
    • Dynamic and static test machines
    • Optical- and scanning electron microscopes (SEM)
    • Energy dispersive analysis of X-rays in the SEM (EDX, for analysis of the chemical composition)
    • Non-destructive testing
  • Experts that do not only have the necessary know how for interpretation of the results, but who can also perform simulations to get a better insight into the overall problem
  • Experts that are able to combine their knowledge on materials, production techniques and problem solving to determine the root cause of decreased production yields
  • Quality assurance, traceability and reports that meet the highest international standards and give recommendation to prevent failures in the future
