Root Cause Analysis of Metal Problems

Many problems that arise during product development, manufacturing, and product use involve metal stock, components, and joints. When a metal is involved, a metallurgical examination is needed to obtain information that will help determine the root cause of the problem.

Watch this video of a past webinar to learn how common metallurgical analysis techniques are used to obtain the information needed to determine the root cause of problems. You will learn about how metallurgical evaluations fit into the root cause analysis process, the analysis equipment used, the data obtained, and how to use the information obtained from a metallurgical evaluation to determine the root cause of a problem.

You will have 14 days access to the webinar recording. A pdf file of the presentation slides is available for download.
