Microstructure of a Stir Weld Joining Two Aluminum SheetsWhether a tiny laser weld on an implantable medical device or a multi-pass weld on a stainless steel forging, MEE has the specialized tools for the examination and evaluation of welds and welding processes. A metallographic cross section and microhardness test performed by one of our experienced staff can provide the valuable information for procedure development or welder qualification.

Recent Projects Include:

  • Characterization of titanium laser spot welds
  • Characterization of weld geometry in a disimilar noble metal weld
  • Fatigue failure at a weld in a cheese mold
  • Fatigue failure in a steam line due to incomplete joint penetration
  • Caustic stress corrosion cracking near welds in a chemical process pipe
