Material Testing and Characterisation

Material and Process Analysis at the LKR Ranshofen

From Micro to Macro

Modern high-performance materials permanently open new, increasingly demanding fields of application which require a comprehensive knowledge of the materials and their production processes. Using modern methods, the LKR offers a complete spectrum of microstructure, material and process characterization procedures.
