WMT&R's Metallographic Labs are designed to meet all common and specialized needs from lot release and material-overcheck testing to failure analysis and problem solving on test specimens, finished parts, and fasteners.
A major investment in Metallographic facilities has allowed us to incorporate all metallographic and analytical related activities into one state-of-the-art building. These specialized areas are the Metallographic Section, Analytical Department, Heat Treating Section, and the Stress Corrosion Testing Laboratory.
Our experienced technicians and metallurgists work closely with the analytical and physical testing groups to provide an overall view of material characteristics so that even the most difficult problems can be identified and solved quickly.
Conventional specimen preparation and automated polishing procedures using 1.25" to 2" diameter compression mounts ensure superior edge retention and flatness of specimens. Other methods include cold mounting and slot polishing.
Light microscopes and metallographs using conventional and inverted stages are used to characterize and photograph materials from 12X to 1200X for the following:
