What is Metallography?
Metallography is the study of the physical structure of metals and metal alloys using microscopy. The knowledge obtained from metallography is used in the design, development, and manufacture of alloy materials. Using advanced equipment, we provide a full suite of examinations. Mechanical tests evaluate materials under conditions such as tension, compression, and temperature.
Precision Thermal Processing is equipped to provide a comprehensive range of mechanical testing services for metals and alloys with quick, reliable results. Chemical tests involve an examination designed to identify, quantify, or characterize a chemical compound or chemical group. Chemical testing is vital for regulatory compliance and to understand the quality and composition of chemical substances and materials used in industrial processing and manufacturing. At Precision Thermal Processing, we offer a range of chemical testing techniques.
What is Metallography used for?
Metallurgical analysis reveals the condition and makeup of materials, which helps determine whether they can perform safely and optimally. Understanding how the metal reacts when transformed from the raw material into a finished part improves performance and quality while reducing development time, costs, and risks to humans and the environment. Precision Thermal Processing has an in-house, state-of-the-art metallurgy laboratory staffed by highly trained technicians who specialize in the testing of traditional metals and advanced alloys. Results help clients across an array of industries evaluate the integrity of metals as well as pinpoint failure.

EXPLORE THERMAL PROCESSES
The Hardening process for most alloyed components is accomplished by heating to a temperature above its critical transition temperature. The steel is then quenched and tempered to achieve the final desired properties.
Vacuum processing yields extremely clean parts with superior microstructure while minimizing part distortion.
