Reliability of assets – such as production facilities, plants or vehicles – is vital for economic operation in various business fields where also safety is of highest priority. Due to operational conditions – that include e.g. cyclic loading, relative motion, pressure and temperature – structural materials undergo certain aging mechanisms. Therefore, a reliable condition assessment is vital in order to define and implement appropriate actions.


Our competencies are the characterization of materials on the macroscale and microscale. It can be done both stationary in the laboratory but also on site with in-situ techniques right at the component or asset. This service is complemented by root cause analysis for a detailed characterization of failure mechanisms, fitness for service and lifetime evaluations.


The experienced team is part of an accredited laboratory according to EN / ISO 17025 and is able to provide integrated material expert support.
