    Failure Analysis & Testing Services

    Failure analysis is the step-by-step process of determining the source of failure in products to correct the issue and use it to prevent recurrence of failure. Failure analysis is a crucial part of product development, improvement, and quality control. A multi-disciplinary suite of mechanical, chemical, physical, and environmental investigative studies is employed to characterize the failure and the failed material to understand the underlying issue and provide a comprehensive solution based on the findings. Failure analysis helps companies prevent future product failure, avoid financial losses, meet product safety and compliance standards, and determine future product liability.

    Failure analysis is a routine service employed by manufacturers, commercial intermediaries, consumers, and insurance companies among a wide range of industries, including Aerospace, Energy, Transportation, Electronics, Construction, Medical Device, and Consumer Products.

      FAQs on Failure Analysis

      Where can I do failure analysis of materials?

      Our material testing labs regularly provide a wide range of failure analysis services for failed parts, components, and products.

      How much does failure analysis cost?

      Failure analysis entails a step-by-step specific approach and employs a suite of inspection, metrology, and product testing services. Initial inspection of the failed product or material can start from $30

      What is failure analysis?

      Failure analysis is the step-by-step process of determining the source of failure in products to correct the issue and use it to prevent recurrence of failure.

      What is failure analysis used for?

      Failure analysis is a crucial part of product development, improvement, and quality control. It helps companies prevent future product failure, avoid financial losses, meet product safety and compliance standards, and determine future product liability.

      How do you conduct a failure analysis?

      The basic steps for failure analysis include:
      1. Defining the problem.
      2. Data collection.
      3. Damage identification.
      4. Testing the actual mechanism that leads to the failure.
      5. Root cause analysis.
      6. Determining the cause-effect relationship.
      7. Testing the actual root cause.
      8. Implementing corrective measures.

      What is failure analysis of material?

      Failure analysis is the step-by-step process of determining the source of failure in products to correct the issue and use it to prevent recurrence of failure.

      Which tool is used for failure analysis?

      The different failure analysis tools and methods include:
      • Failure data collection
      • FMEA (Failure Mode, Effects and Analysis)
      • FMECA (Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis)
      • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
      • Event Tree Analysis (ETA)

      What does a failure analyst do?

      A failure analyst conducts QC checks, identifies errors, provides recommendation to avoid product/process failures, and overall works to increase the efficiency of a system. They also analyze past failures to avoid future product down-time.
