USA Metallurgical/Analytical Chemistry Laboratory needed for testing 2 small stainless steel parts to start (we are looking for long term lab partner for regular and ongoing lab analyses). Parts are approx .625" x .625". We believe parts were damaged in annealing process.
Need metallurgy evaluation, comparing the 2 parts,especially related to annealing process and full chemistry to verify steel specification.
This is a simple, straightforward analysis.
Automotive rear view mirrors manufacturer needs Materials Laboratory to perform roughness testing on the ground edge of the mirror. Mirrors range in size, and average 2 mm in thickness. Testing would be done along the 2 mm wide edge. Current spec of 1.8 Ra micro meters max. This would be an ongoing process, as customer requirements determine the amount of parts and frequency.
