Uncovering a metal's character, its heat treatment condition, its microstructure, the process by which it was formed, and whether it conforms to necessary specifications, requires metallurgical analysis. The laboratory's metallurgical engineers and technicians combine their chemical and metallurgical expertise to deliver rapid and accurate analyses.

Additionally, the metallurgical staff performs micro and macro examinations to detect, identify, and resolve specification issues.

Microstructure Evaluations: Grain size determination, Inclusion Rating, Decarburization Depth, Case Depth, Nodularity, heat treatment condition, porosity measurement, micro structural constituents and Volume Fraction; Plating Evaluation and Plating thickness.

Photographic Documentation: Image Processing System on Hi-Tech metallurgical microscopes like Olympus. Stereo Microscope from Carl Zeiss, Germany is used for metal analysis and failure case studies.

Macro Examination: Welded joints, forged components, brazed joints.
