Metallographic Services
From simple microstructure evaluation to comprehensive failure analysis, Anderson Laboratories is your choice for premium metallographic testing services.  Since our early beginning in 1939 when our primary efforts revolved around foundry and casting materials, our efforts have greatly expanded to address metallurgical issues from manufacturing, mining, nuclear, agricultural, petrochemical and other industries.

Our complete metallographic laboratory includes image analysis for the determination and evaluation of grain size, inclusions, graphite morphology, ferrite measurement, plating thickness, decarb layer and dendritic arm spacing.

Heat treat evaluations, both micro and macro hardness surveys, microstructure evaluations and other process controls are performed on a daily basis.

Our experienced staff is qualified to perform simple to complex failure analyses.  The use of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to identify defects within a structure is one of the many tools employed in this process.

Please Contact Us for more information regarding this and other material testing services that could be beneficial to your organization.
