Laboratory of analyses and expertises Metallurgy, Iron and Steel industry and Foundry
Your needs: optimize the manufacturing of your metal products and analyze the causes of failures.
Steelmakers, foundries, manufacturers and suppliers, you are subject to important strategic stakes requiring you to monitor the quality of your materials in order to optimize your industrial processes (costs, lead times, scrap rates, etc.).
From the design to the marketing of a product with metallic components, you are faced with several types of problems, concerning :
- Control of raw materials
- Substitution of metallic alloys
- Understanding and anticipating the behavior of materials in their environment of use
- The performance of surface treatments
- Optimization of manufacturing and machining processes to reduce the risk of failure.
To help you solve these problems, the support of a reliable laboratory with high technical added value allows you to better understand the changes in the metallurgical sector, and to gain efficiency in your activity.
