Metlab Oy has years of experience in determining root causes of failures. We can provide independent evaluation of causes of failure or limit possible reasons of failure. Typical products for failure examinations area different parts of machine drives, tubes of process industry and welded structures. We produce high-quality reports of the examinations performed efficiently.

  • Visual and macroscopic examinations
  • Chemical composition analyses of materials
  • Checking of mechanical properties, e.g. tensile, impact and hardness tests
  • Microstructure examinations
  • Scanning electron microscope examinations, e.g. fracture surfaces, corrosion products, inclusions and microanalyses
