Metallurgical Testing typically uses microscopy to provide important information about the structure and properties of metal and alloy samples. These services are also called Metallography Evaluation, Metallographic Examination and Metallurgical Analysis.
The metallurgists at W I Met-Lab have deep expertise in Metallographic preparation and examination to evaluate the characteristics of metals. They are highly skilled to assess a particular material’s heat treatment condition, microstructure, and forming process. The team undertakes macro and micro examination including Weld Examination, Case Depth and Decarburization Measurement, Micro Hardness Testing and Coating/Plating evaluation.
The Metallography department employs the Inverted Metallurgical Microscope and Stereo Zoom Microscope with an Image Analysis System. The technical team has indigenously developed microstructure characterizer software that assists with the analysis of images to determine Microstructural degradation due to creep. The software can also calculate the graphitization, depth or width of decarburization, phase/volume percentage, grain growth, inclusion rating, particle size, volume percentage, particle count, porosity and coating thickness
