Metallography is the study of the structure of Metals and Alloys. Metallographic analysis can be used as a tool to help identify a metal or alloy, to determine whetheer an alloy was processed correctly, to examine multiple phases within a material, to locate and characterize imperfections such as voids or impurities, or to observe or degraded areas in failure analysis investigations.

We have the complete range of equipments for carrying out studies of Metallic Microstructures. These equipments include those required for microstructure samples preaparation like Specimen Cut-off Machine, Mopunting Press, Disc Polishers.

The following tests are done in our Lab:

  • Microstructure Analysis
  • Average of Grain Size
  • Measuring case Depth in Steel
  • Inclusion Rating 
  • Microstructure of Cast Irons
  • Measuring Decarburised depth.
  • Determination of Volume Fraction of Phase
  • Measurement of Coating Thickness
  • Weld evaluations
  • Macro Examination
  • Nitriding Thickness
  • Cracks and other defects
  • Intergranular attack(IGA)
  • Sensitization
