Metallurgical Laboratory (MET-LAB)

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

The MET-LAB can perform materials characterization for all types of metallic components and systems to any industry-specific or military standard.Capabilities:The MET-LAB contains instrumentation used in the characterization and analysis of materials at both the macro and micro levels. MET-LAB has the capabilities to measure mechanical properties, such as tensile strength and hardness, identify metallic particulates, and conduct chemical analysis for metallic materials at both the macro and micro levels. The MET-LAB can conduct both qualitative and quantitative micro-structural evaluation, such as microstructural phase analysis, grain size and grain texture. In addition, instrumentation can be used for manufacturing process development, characterization and process quality evaluation. The materials engineering staff can conduct failure analysis of components and characterization of welds to determine root cause of failures.Benefits:[HTML_REMOVED][HTML_REMOVED] Reduce production cost by evaluating material and process quality, and offering recommendations for process improvement.[HTML_REMOVED][HTML_REMOVED] Evaluate contractors[HTML_REMOVED] manufacturing process changes to assure product quality.[HTML_REMOVED][HTML_REMOVED] Conduct failure analysis on all types of metallic components and systems, and offer design change recommendations; evaluate contractor design change recommendations.[HTML_REMOVED][HTML_REMOVED] Support M[HTML_REMOVED]S efforts by determining material property data.
