Material testing

Before you put it to work, we put it under the microscope.

Material testing

Exploring a new world of development
Every time our engineers put steel under their electron microscopes, they reveal a fascinating new world. The surface of the material - which we use in a variety of alloys - could be mistaken for a mountain range, yet these images are more than just pretty pictures...they provide our engineers with a huge amount of critical development information.

At the cutting edge of development
The images from the microscope may look stunning but they also have practical benefits - for example, they allow us to identify the cause of any breaks or weaknesses. They expand our knowledge and expertise when it comes to materials, their properties and their behaviour too - which means we're always at the cutting edge of development.
