Metallurgy expertise and Laboratory

Metallurgy Expertise

This expertise pertains to the detailed investigation of an equipment part and its immediate environment (mechanical failure or in-service wear) to identify the causes and determine who is responsible for the problem. These two elements will make it possible for a company to seek compensation from the provider for production losses, free replacement of the comprised part, and even inspection fees.
