Failure Analysis since 1922

Our interdisciplinary team of experts from all departments has extensive and varied test procedures at its disposal for the analysis of damage claims. Damaged components are analysed quickly, reliably and to the highest quality standards.
About 150 test methods are accredited at fem according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 – from classical metallography and various chemical methods to non-destructive 3D X-ray computer tomography and scanning electron microscopy with Focused Ion Beam (FIB). We determine which method is the right one for your individual case of damage in a consultation and after a thorough examination of your samples.

Second step: research and development

Damage analysis is often only the first step, further development and optimization of a component the second. With almost one hundred years of experience and know-how, we are the ideal partner for your R&D projects. As a research service provider, we develop innovative and tailor-made materials, coating systems and processes directly or within the framework of public funding programmes. Call us today, write to us or visit us in Schwäbisch Gmünd - we look forward to working with you!
