Metallurgical and Materials Engineering
Materials science and metallurgical engineering focus on the relationship between the composition and processing of materials and the resulting effects on performance. The understanding and proper application of principles is critical to making materials perform reliably and safely. Identifying the root cause of material failure and offering a potential resolution, are what our customers have come to expect from Fusion Engineering whether it be a metal, polymer, glass or ceramic.
Today’s increasingly advanced materials opens the door for improved and more reliable technology and products. Clients from the telecommunications, aerospace, steel and foundry, transportation, manufacturing, pharmaceutical/medical, building and structures, and utility industries routinely rely on us to provide expert testing and analysis.
A small crack invisible to the naked eye can have catastrophic consequences. Our metallurgical experts possess the capabilities to determine whether a given failure was due to the application of extraordinary forces, improper design, improper material selection, presence of an environmental factor, or the result of a material flaw. Fusion Engineering possesses the critical knowledge needed to analyze why and how a metallurgical failure contributed to an accident.
Fusion Engineering offers a combination of both destructive testing and non-destructive testing methods for metals and plastics to determine their properties, performance, strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion which can ultimately ensure that the materials are safe, compliant, and fit for the purpose in their intended applications.
As part of our materials testing services, Fusion Engineering provides advanced solutions in metallurgical technology, offering expert support in testing and consultation aligned to all stages of metals processing and product development. Our engineers deliver comprehensive, inter-disciplinary services in the development, processing, characterization and testing of all materials.
