Failure investigation

FAILURE INVESTIGATION: the importance in the industrial field.
Component and industrial product defects and breaks can occur in various phases of the life cycle, of designing and prototyping, primary/secondary production and assembly, all the way to its operating phase. Failure investigation is a specific type of inspection that, through observation and testing, we are able to determine the ways in which a component breaks or deteriorates and thus find the root cause. Managing to pinpoint the problem in one of the phases before use is fundamental. The objectives of Failure Analysis are to in fact identify the mechanism of the break, find its origin and its critical points. .

TEC Eurolab’s approach is to gather information at the root cause.
The approach to analysis failure of a component or product examined in specific phases which can briefly be broken down into: :

Preliminary information gathering >> Inspection and sampling >> Photographic documentation of the state >> Non-destructive evidence >> Verification of the material (chemical analysis and mechanical characteristics) >> Macrographic analysis (microstructural testing), Fractographic analysis (test aimed at the root cause in fractographically or microstructurally))

Following this, the damaging mechanisms are studied and evaluated, then the content and/or origin of the problem, and finally hypotheses are formulated on the cause of the problem. This is all done in order to find the root cause of the breakage. .

Technical support on solutions to the problem.
TEC Eurolab supports its clients along the entire life cycle of a product and in order to offer the best support, we provide a qualified team of failure analysts with field experience in multiple industrial sectors, along with latest generation equipment, a direct line with clients and precise final reports available online in a private area.
