We can help you design, layout and equip a turn-key metallographic laboratory based on your specific needs & unique requirements. 

Our team will work in your lab or ours to train your team to use equipment and supplies efficiently and effectively. Our training courses teach practical metallography concepts and show you how to apply them to your real-world situation. We would be happy to customize a class and can help you determine best practices based on your specific needs. This would include developing preparation guidelines and SOPs to keep your team on track long after the training ends.
