Identify root causes and prevent new failures with failure analysis and failure investigation based on dedicated material technology
Failures in parts and components and their associated downtime cost companies millions of euros every year. The causes of failure are many and varied. Failures in metal materials can be caused by mechanical and thermal overload, corrosion attacks, wear or a combination of all these stress types.
Failure analysis or failure investigation can help to identify the root cause of component failure. The results of failure analysis and/or failure investigation further help to improve the product characteristics and operational conditions of parts and components.
Failure analysis and root cause analysis – our approach
When analysing or investigating failures, our team of experts proceed according to the VDI 3822 series of standards, using systematic material tests. The findings of these tests allow us to draw detailed conclusions regarding the failure mechanisms at the cause of the problem. We also include the manufacturing and operating conditions in our assessment. On this basis, we work with you to find a satisfactory solution and prevent further failures.
