Advanced Materials Engineering
Advanced Materials Engineering

Here, you will find independent engineers with a vast array of engineering specialism that will help across the board spanning from construction, product development through to materials science.

We have a specialist interest in materials advanced analysis for both advanced materials using XRay, STEM, TEM or SEM.

Simple analytical techniques can also be used to troubleshoot some common problems prior to helping you build a wider understanding of your materials needs be it for failure analysis or simply building up understanding for a new product/undertaking. We will help you to produce specifications for, design, process and apply current materials specifications effectively.
