- Where, why, and how does this product fail?
- Is it process, material, or design related?
- Why is my product performing like this?
Failure analysis and root cause investigation 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. Thanks to our knowledge of a diverse range of materials and their properties, our disciplined and methodical analytical approach, our additive manufacturing expertise and the wide range of analytical capabilities at our disposal, we can work with you to analyze failures and find their root causes and, more importantly, provide timely and cost-effective solutions.
We offer complete physical, chemical and surface analysis capabilities for analyzing failures in metallic or non-metallic additive manufactured materials and components.
Lucideon's failure analysis 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.
