AAC offers specialised equipment for testing materials, coatings and components for the energy sector.
AAC operates a wide range of tribological test equipment that provides time and cost-effective material-level validation. Tests are available for component or sub-components and include the validation of ball- and journal bearing tests, slip rings and gears and transmissions.
AAC is specialized in weathering and outdoor exposure testing services for solar and wind energy coatings and components.
Mechanical testing covers almost all technical temperature ranges starting from cryogenic level (4K) up to almost Re-entry conditions (2200°C)
In addition, pre and post-test analysis is offered. Starting from non-destructive testing by ultrasonic inspection and online monitoring of mechanical tests by acoustic emission over standard visual inspection, metallographic preparation followed by microscopy from optical up to Scanning Electron Microscopes. The latter offer also elemental analysis (EDX), but also crystallographic analysis (EBSD). FIB (focused Ion Beam) enables localised in-situ cross sectioning.
