Metallurgical Inspection

TMT has a metallurgical engineering team in-house to support you. Along with assisting you in material and process selection, as well as product reviews and even design, our team performs metallurgical inspection preparation and testing, in-house. 

Metallurgical Testing–a quick overview

Metallurgical testing typically involves the use of microscopy to assess the structure and other important properties of metal and alloy samples. When metals and alloys are subjected to heat treatments of any sort, their crystalline structures change, affecting their characteristics. Metallurgical Testing is an important part of studying this structure, and ensuring that heat-treated components will meet the requirements set for them. This process allows us to examine the sample’s grain flow and surface condition as well.
