The welded component challenge

Learn how to use the latest materialographic preparation techniques to reveal the key features of complex welds


The automotive industry is continuously pushing the boundaries of joining and welding technology. Welds are becoming smaller, with multiple materials and more complex component geometries. As a result, your materialographic preparation methods need to advance to stay up to date.

We have taken an in-depth look at the latest materialographic preparation techniques to give you a quick and reliable approach to preparing welds for quality assurance investigation.
In this report, you can learn how to:

  • Determine the features of complex joins quickly and effectively
  • Reveal key parameters wihtout introducing artifacts, such as cracks, reliefs or pull-outs
  • Develop a four-step approach that enables you to check quality wihtout compromising production efficiency
