Material characterization as a service

Reliable and robust material datasheets are the prerequisite for robust and successful simulations of real products and processes.
With our in depth knowledge and cutting-edge measurement resources we are able to characterize your material and provide the information that you need.

We focus on the characterization of ferrous and non ferrous metals and alloys and are able to provide comprehensive datasets for every application.
