We answer questions that occur during the quality assurance phase of industrial production or due to failure during service. The scientific investigation of damage to and failures of metals and metallic components is well established within the Fraunhofer IWM. We will build an expert project team customized for your individual task, which will assess the situation and discuss the next steps with you to reach an effective solution. Because time is such an extremely important factor in damage and failure analysis, we handle each project flexibly, confidentially and with a customer-oriented focus. Based on the findings of our assessment and on a no obligation consultation, you will quickly receive an offer.
It is not common for a single event to lead to component damage. Generally it is an interaction of several factors. When engaged in failure assessment, if desired we not only consider the current cause of damage but also analyze the entire environment including the material(s) in question, the process chain and operating conditions. This includes significant mechanical, thermal, corrosive and tribological influencing factors. Convince yourself of our expertise and let us collaboratively find tailor-made solutions to your questions.
