Find Structural Defects at Microscopic Levels
Avomeen’s microscopy laboratory is equipped with the state-of-the-art Scanning Electron Microscopy/Energy-Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (SEM/EDXA) machinery, allowing our scientists to find defects at the micrometer (micron) and even nanometer (nm) levels.
Custom Physical Testing & Quality Control
Avomeen offers routine and custom physical testing of thermal and mechanical properties. Our techniques include Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy-Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), and Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA).
Case Study – Manufacturing Testing: Parts FailureIndustry: Manufacturing
Problem: Microscopic Contamination
Solution: A producer of pressure measurement devices was manufacturing parts that measured less than 1 mm in size, and was experiencing microscopic contamination. The parts were being returned by customers and were considered failed products. Scanning Electron Microscope and Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis were used to take high magnification pictures (100-1000x) and elemental scans of the microscopic contaminant particles. Through SEM/EDS analysis, we found that the particles were loosely on top of the product, and the contamination was not the result of a structural defect. The contaminant was found to be a byproduct of plastic degradation, the cause of which was traced back to the plastic tubing used in the manufacturing process.
