Cooperation with Industry

  • Structural analysis of metallic and nonmetallic materials (macro microstructure, inclusion content, grain size, DAS, porosity, analysis of graphitic particles, etc.) according to valid standards.
  • Testing of mechanical properties (hardness and microhardness Vickers, Knoop, Brinell, Rockwell testing, tensile tests, etc.).
  • Analysis of chemical composition (Optical Emission Spectroscopy with Spark Excitation‚ analysis of solutions by lnductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy, EDS microanalysis).
  • Testing of the quality of initial metallurgical material.
  • Control of possible confusion of structural materials, including determination of chemical composition.
  • Analysis of material properties after technological processes (heat treatment, forming, etc.).
  • Control of the quality of welded joints.
  • Analysis of the cause of the fracture of material during processing.
  • Analysis of the cause of the components fracture during operation (wear).
  • Complex analysis of layers and coatings (coatings prepared via thermal spraying, galvanic coatings).
  • Development and optimization of metallographic preparation techniques for specific materials for industrial laboratories.

Testing of coatings (thermal and environmental barrier coatings, abradable coatings, hydrophobic wear resistant coatings, biological coatings, ...) via standard testing methods and via developed uncommon testing apparatuses like SAR test, burner-rig test, cavitation test, abradable-rig test and erosion number test.
