Materialography and Analytics

Experts in materials

The Service Center for Materialography and Analytics characterizes a wide range of materials using state-of-the-art analytical facilities. We utilize our extensive knowledge of materials to carry out development work for a wide range of industries and to undertake failure/damage analyses.

Materialography and Analytics for industry and R&D

The goal of materialographic analytics is to describe the microstructure of materials and to characterize the relationships between the chemical composition, microstructure development, and technological properties. This information is also used to determine the causes of component failure and to optimize processes for product development.

We offer the following services:

Besides one-off contracts we also offer customized contracts. This thus enables you to utilize the expertise and facilities at Fraunhofer IFAM.

Our services are accredited in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 and specific areas are accredited in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005.
