Laboratory for the study of failures in the aeronautical industry

Your needs: to carry out an expertise on a defect or a failure of your aeronautical materials or fluids

Whether it is initiated by an internal manufacturing problem or by a customer feedback, a product failure results in a deterioration of the product, impacting its reliability, its solidity and its performance. A failure can materialize in many forms: breakage of parts, corrosion mechanism, adhesion defect, presence of pollution, wear of materials, premature ageing… All these contexts will initiate in the aeronautical industry a need for expertise on the origin of this failure, and then for research of solutions.

The study of your aeronautical materials and equipment will allow you to improve the performance of your materials (life span, weight, noise pollution), to optimize your costs (maintenance, material) while respecting environmental standards.

These various problems lead you to seek the cooperation of a reliable, reactive laboratory with high technical added value.

Our solutions: assisting manufacturers in the aeronautical sector in assessing the nature and causes of a failure
