Failure Analysis

The failure analysis group specializes in root cause analysis. Our special expertise is in quantifying all aspects of failure analysis, performing in-depth investigations using engineering analysis, metallurgy, and materials testing. Failure Analysis reports provides a clear picture of the root causes, and includes recommendations to avoid future failures.
