WELDING METALLURGY

The ability to join two materials together is essential to industry and is utilized in some capacity by nearly all industries. The cost of welding is directly correlated to the quality of the weld; therefore, a weld with a slight crack or an improperly weld procedure can have disastrous consequences. Having the ability to evaluate a weld’s physical aspects along with the microstructure of the weld can facilitate evaluation of weld quality.

Should there be weld failures RTL can conduct root cause failure analysis to determine the cause of failure and in many cases make suggestions to prevent failures in the future.
