Optimech offer a range of options to provide clients with the solutions to problems encountered by the power utilities, automotive, manufacturing, oil & gas, and other industries. In-house metallurgical expertise, combined with material examination can identify and isolate failure issues associated with structural defects, corrosion, batch inconsistencies, poor assembly and other problems.

Optimech’s metallurgical laboratories us metallurgy related failure analysis knowledge and experience, providing comprehensive approaches for detecting key issues causing product defects.

Metallurgy failure investigations include a wide variety of methods and techniques to determine the the root cause of failure. Typical assessment may include visual and microscopic assessments, heat treatment, compositional analysis and hardness testing – we usually opt to start with the non destructive testing methods as they do not interfere with the damage already present, and from here we can carry out further assessment if needed.
