Analysis Lab & Metallurgical Testing

In our analysis laboratory we take and test metallurgical testing samples regularly to verify that a production run or process is functioning satisfactorily.

Verifying and analysing the production set-up that is actually running is an important part of the quality assurance work. Within the automotive industry, Predire does a lot of work with leading manufacturers of bodywork in aluminium and sheet steel, for example. For these products, we help verify welded and soldered joints to check that the procedures have been carried out correctly. Verifications and analyses are primarily focused on determining whether there are any weaknesses in the production set-up – and if so, where – and then establishing what is causing them as early as possible in the production phase
