In-situ material analysis
We understand that it’s not always possible to transport samples or destroy component materials, so The Lab has invested in the latest portable testing equipment, so that our experts can come to you to carry out material analysis.
These assessments can either form part of a failure investigation, or part of the normal manufacturing quality assurance process.
Our portable chemical analysis equipment consists of:
- LIBS - laser-induced breakdown spectrometry
- PMI-OES - positive material identification – spark - optical emission spectrometry
Our portable mechanical testing equipment includes:
- Leeb d rebound hardness test (LRHT)
- Ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI)
