With many years’ experience in the production of materials to tight compositional tolerances and controlled microstructures, LCM offers an innovative and highly flexible approach to a wide range of material requirements.
Powder XRD can be used for the analysis of minerals and raw materials.
The LCM lab offers two sieve-shakers to qualify the particle size of various powdered alloys, including the calculation of D25, D50 and D75.
A light microscope can be used to assess the structure of alloys at low magnifications (X10-X500 magnification).
Gas-fusion and combustion techniques employ infrared (IR) and thermal detection of: C, S, O and N.
Electron microscopes can be used to produce detailed micrographs at high magnifications.
LCM has developed and commissioned a highly reliable laser-based technique for rapid and accurate analysis.
Optical emission spectroscopy is a tool for the determination of metallic elements in concentrations from 0.05 % to 100 % (w/w).
