Laboratory Developments

ADI Treatments Ltd has always had the technical metallurgical expertise and knowledge to operate an in house laboratory.  The company is continuing to build its capacity and today announced investments that update and improve the laboratory facility, capacity and capability.

The company now offers hardness testing and sectioned microstructure analysis as standard.  A new suite of equipment including band saw, Brinnel and electronic microscope develops and improves capability, acuracy, response and customer service.

The band saw provides a ready resource for rapid first off and routine batch quality control.  The new Brinell hardness tester reduces operator intervention and skill, meanwhile improving repeatability and accuracy to the level of +/- 0.01mm in hardness measurements.  Finally, the computer interfaced microscope doubles the magnification limit allowing 1000x magnification with soft image capture and reporting software.  This allows instant feedback and rapid communication of results.  In fact, the company can offer video-conferencing to discuss issues, share results and resolve problems.
