We provide the following services for metallographic testing:

Inspection of structures in a wide variety of different materials, such as:

  • Testing and evaluation of cast structures as per DIN EN 1561 and 1563, determination of apparent grain size as per DIN EN ISO 643
  • Determination of purity level in steels as per DIN EN 10247
  • Inspection of heat treatment
  • Testing of non-ferrous metals such as copper alloys, aluminium materials, titanium alloys, niobium material and diamond saw blades

Testing of coatings

  • Determination of layer thickness using a ball crater and metallographic processes with subsequent measurement of layers under an optical microscope and a scanning electron microscope
  • Instrumented penetrant test to determine hardness and other parameters in materials
  • Shear strength as per DIN 50162, tensile adhesive strength on thermal spraying layers as per DIN EN 582
  • Quality control of coatings on DLC and PVD layers, chrome and nickel plating, flame spray layers and laser powder welding
