Welding and Joining Seminar

posted February 2016

MEE staff attended the Minnesota Chapter of ASM seminar on Welding and Joining at Hennepin Technical College.  One of the talks, Solid -State Welding of  Stainless Steel to Nitinol, included SEM images of samples prepared with the broad-beam ion mill by MEE Laboratory Manager,  Kurt Schenk.

SEM and metallographic imaging of welds provides valuable information for weld process control or determination of the failure mechanism in a failure analysis project.

More images of welds and ion-milled samples can be found on our website gallery or online Materials Handbook.
