Together with our customers and partners, we develop production processes and manufacturing methods (casting, metal forming and joining) as well as methods for describing and understanding the metals microstructure and properties in solid as well as liquid phase. By using our laboratory infrastructure we perform characterization in multiscale, from nano to macro scale.
Advanced materials characterization and modeling
Our ability to develop new or improved materials and processes depends largely on the availability of good experimental and numerical infrastructure. Modern laboratories and numerical models are necessary to describe and understand the relationship between composition and structure of materials and material properties and how this relationship is affected by processing parameters. The tools are also often used to understand why materials degrade or fail after being used.
