Metallography is the fastest growing requirement in industry today. Research and case studies show that the product lifecycle is often attributable to properties examined at the microscopic level. At CMTL our engineers and technologists use the latest available Image Analysis Systems and software coupled to our microscopes, stereo microscopes, and hardness instruments to assure compliance to the newest material standards.

Metallographic Inspections
Microstructure evaluation, fraction volume percent, grain size, inclusion rating, cast iron classification, fractography, and coating thickness.

Hardness Testing
Macro and micro hardness in Vickers and Knoop scales from 25g to 50kg loads.

On-Site Inspections
On-Site microscopic replication, portable microscopy, and ferrite determination are available for testing in situ.

Engineering Services and Support
Our obligation goes beyond the provision of fast accurate test results; we also assist our customers in those instances where consultation and interpretation may be required to better relate information to your manufacturing process and specifications. The staff at CMTL is a valuable resource for our customers with production/fabrication issues, material property determination and selection, troubleshooting, and ultimately failure analysis.
