Metallurgical tests

It is not just the chemical composition which determines the quality of carbides. Mechanical and metallurgical properties such as grain size, hardness, density and phase composition also have a considerable influence on the quality of the carbide. In order to determine these essential quality features quickly and with certainty, we have our own in-house laboratory for carrying out professional metallurgical analyses.

As well as providing quality assurance for our products, these checks – whether they be individual analyses or regular tests – ensure reliability for the user, tool manufacturer and the end user. Independent evaluation by our experts guarantees maximum application reliability, cost savings, and transparency when purchasing carbide.
