Microstructural Characterisation

The team of micro­struc­tural char­ac­ter­isa­tion possesses a profound know­ledge and profes­sional exper­i­ence in the field of mater­i­als devel­op­ment and optim­iz­a­tion, fail­ure analysis and qual­ity control. We are work­ing with a huge vari­ety of metals and alloys like, in partic­u­lar, steel, Al- and Ti-alloys, compos­ites, coat­ings and elec­tronic mater­i­als being in close contact with vari­ous indus­trial custom­ers and research insti­tutes. Our experts act in the frame­work of national and inter­na­tional scientific and tech­no­lo­gical programs and are famil­iar with many novel manu­fac­tur­ing tech­no­lo­gies allow­ing evol­u­tion of new struc­tural concepts for terrestrial and aerospace applic­a­tions. A signi­fic­ant part of our work has been devoted to fail­ure analysis resolv­ing of which requires that mech­an­ical, corro­sion or tribolo­gical phenom­ena have to be under­stood and correl­ated with produc­tion processes and applic­a­tion envir­on­ments. Our motiv­ated team works constantly on widen­ing the prepar­a­tion and analysis meth­ods in order to satisfy even the most chal­len­ging demands of the custom­ers and project part­ners.
