Thanks to our knowledge of a diverse range of materials and their properties, our disciplined and methodical analytical approach, our cross-industry expertise and the wide range of analytical capabilities at our disposal, we can work with you to analyse failures and, more importantly, provide timely and cost-effective solutions.
At Lucideon, we know that identifying material, process and product faults and failures quickly in order to avoid downtime, inform product development and ensure buyer satisfaction is of paramount importance.
We offer complete physical, chemical and surface analysis capabilities for analyzing failures in metallic or non-metallic materials to:
- reduce down time
- prevent reoccurrences
- assess liability
- increase fundamental understanding of materials and equipment in your process
For metals, the testing services are augmented by extensive metallography and metallurgical evaluation capabilities, which, when combined with fractography using a scanning electron microscope, can further unlock important clues in the investigation.
For non-metals, chemical and surface analysis are often key to identifying contaminants; where they are and how they have been introduced into processing.
Failure analysis is critical during any phase of the material life cycle. While we often think of it as occurring only as part of the quality control or service performance process, analysis during the design phase can also provide valuable information leading to improvements in the durability and performance of new products.
