Laboratory equipment for materials characterization

Efficient and well-founded materials research requires highly productive methods of material characterization and testing. At Fraunhofer IWS, modern equipment can be used in the fields of metallography, electron microscopy and mechanical material testing. Thus, a specific correlation between material structure and associated fatigue properties of materials and components can be established or the influence of manufacturing parameters on the mechanical properties can be determined.
