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.
