The cost for failure analysis of a fractured injection molding equipment screw is $4,500.
The purpose of the failure analysis is to determine the fracture mode and failure mode of the fracture and whether there are any metallurgical problems with the screw.
The project includes:
- The following lab work: scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy of the fracture surface, metallography, composition analysis, and hardness testing.
- Meeting with your engineering team to review the analysis results and findings and discuss possible root causes of the failure.
- A written report of the analysis results and findings.
