Failure analysis

FAILURE ANALYSIS: its importance in the industrial field
Failures in industrial components and products can occur at various stages of the product’s life cycle, from design and prototyping to primary/secondary processing and assembly, up to the deployment stage.
Failure analysis is a special investigation tool which uses observations and tests to define the mode of failure of a failed component, identifying its possible root causes.
Indeed, failure analysis purposes are to identify the mode of failure, to locate the origins and to reveal critical factors.

The TEC Eurolab approach: from information collection to the cause of breakage
Our approach to failure analysis is basically made of several steps, briefly summarized as follows:
Collecting preliminary information >> Photographic documentation in the as-received conditions >> Visual inspection and Non-Destructive testing >> Sampling and cutting operations >> Fracture analysis (visual , fractographic and micrographic examinations) >> Material testing (chemical analysis and mechanical properties).

According to this, the mode of failure, its origin(s) and the critical factors are identified, and, by the end of the process, hypotheses about the possible root causes are eventually made.

Technical support in solving the problem
In order to offer the best technical support, TEC Eurolab helps its customers throughout the whole product life-cycle with a team of qualified and experienced failure analysts and by using a latest-generation equipment.
TEC Eurolab works together with its customers in solving the problem, providing complete test reports, available in a restricted online area.
