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.

Root cause analysis of any failed product, component, or material is the investigative study of why or how it failed, resolve the problem, and prevent the recurrence of failure.
Chemical analysis is routinely performed to identify unknown components, obtain physical characteristics or chemical composition, and determine the quality of materials.
