Services at the WKK
We offer services in our core competency fields microstructural characterization via optical and electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction based residual stress measurement and phase characterization as well as mechanical characterization under a wide range of loading conditions, e.g. tensile testing, isothermal fatigue, thermo-mechanical fatigue, and Charpy impact testing.
With our long standing research experience on the complex relations between manufacturing process, materials microstructure and mechanical properties, we provide competent advice in your materials related R&D questions. Our Physically Based Lifetime Calculation (PhYBaL™) approach offers unique solutions for determining fatigue lifetime curves with minimum effort.
