Metallurgical Failure Analysis – Forensic Engineering

Machinery Component Failure Analysis

Production line or other heavy machinery failures can be very costly or even catastrophic for a business. Metallurgical failure analysis and metal corrosion testing and investigation services provided by Metallurgical Technologies, Inc. can help minimize and eliminate the undesirable aspects of unexpected down time. When the root cause of the metallurgical/corrosion failure is identified, results are quickly communicated and recommendations made to help prevent future events.

MTi has significant experience in the failure analysis of commercial and industrial machinery components: all types of gears, shafts, pins, bearings, chains, fasteners, impellers, turbines, fans, coils, springs, valves, brackets, rods, couplings, cylinders, housings, fittings, braces, supports, weldments and various other components that can wear, fracture, corrode, or otherwise fail.

Please see some of our case histories for examples of our machinery component failure analyses.
