Mechanical and technological materials testing
Tasks: Determining mechanical parameters.
Methods: Performing tensile, hot-tensile, notched-bar impact, and stress rupture testing, as well as hardness testing per Brinell, Rockwell, and Vickers on steel and nonferrous alloys in compliance with international standards and regulations.
Tasks: Determining microstructure parameters of samples and components—including sample preparation, etching, and photodocumentation—according to inspection standards and customer specifications.
Methods: Determining structure, grain size, and purity level, decarburization, etc.
Tasks: Heat treatment of samples and components according to the requirements of our customers.
Methods: Heating in lab furnaces monitored by the system, in both air and vacuum, supplementary salt baths and sub-zero treatments for residual austenite transformation. Water and oil are available as quenching media.
Metallurgical & physical lab
Tasks: Performing hot-forming simulations, differential thermal analyses and dilatometric testing, heat-treatment and forming simulations, creating TTT and TTA charts, sub-zero simulations, determining linear expansion coefficients, and investigating recrystallization and precipitation processes.
Methods: Material and damage analyses of microstructure samples and fractures, as well as qualitative analysis of nonmetallic inclusions using scanning electron microscopy, measuring physical properties of materials such as testing magnetically soft materials, stress and strain analyses using strain gages, and X-ray diffraction analyses (residual austenite, phase analysis).
