Material Analysis

Materials analysis

Determination of the chemical composition of unknown metallic materials or in the event of suspected material mix-up, for entry control to ensure material delivery quality or to restrict the origin of foreign particles, etc.

Do you have any questions on our material analysis?

Contact us.

RUBIG has numerous methods for determining the chemical composition:

  • Chemical analysis of steels and other metals:
    • Stationary spark spectrometer
    • Optical glow discharge optical emission spectrometer (GDOES)
  • Chemical analysis of very small components, chips, metallic particles or for selected, microscopically small areas:
    • EDX microanalysis system
  • Measurement of element profiles / depth profiles of hard material-layered or thermochemically treated components (thick DLC layers also possible):
    • Optical glow discharge optical emission spectrometer (GDOES)
  • Determining the residual austenite content (RA measurement):
    • X-ray diffractometer analysis

Which material is your part made of?

In combination with the heat treatment, the alloy components of a metallic material provide the material basic conditions for the machinability of semi-finished products and for the performance of components during use. Knowledge about the chemical composition is therefore very important.

Determining the chemical composition of raw materials, components or tools:

  • Establishing the material type of an unknown part
  • Incoming goods inspection for assurance of the material delivery quality
  • Quick comparison tests in the event of suspicion of material mix-up
  • Restricting the origin of foreign particles an wear surfaces or metal chips in plastic end products
  • Determining the residual austenite content
