Examine material properties down to the smallest detail

What is the material like? Are there inclusions?

The daily work of the materials tester is as demanding as it is responsible, because measuring tolerances and deviations from the standard provide indications of the quality of the material,, which determines the further quality and safety of the products. Therefore, material testing is crucial.

Material testing is performed using mechanical, technological or physical methods. For example, they check the material properties, such as hardness, with test or X-ray machines and compare them with the corresponding standard tables and quality specifications, calculate characteristic values and compare the target and actual states

The same goal is the grinding of material samples, followed by subsequent sample inspection under the microscope,. This work is extremely important, because only flawless material guarantees safe products.
