Other Techniques of Surface Analysis
Network of techniques and experts

Quality is particularly important to us. Therefore, we only work with the techniques that we use on a daily basis. This enables us to build up a high level of application experience. In addition, these analyses are multi-person activities, so that on-site a lively exchange between employees is possible.

If, in addition, the use of other techniques is useful, we cooperate with partner laboratories in which the desired technology is used every day. These laboratories are carefully selected and will be audited by us if necessary. Our employees are regularly trained in the application possibilities of the techniques, so that our customers can benefit from a very broad portfolio of technology.

In addition to experts in these analysis techniques, our cooperation network also includes partners for engineering services, QM experts, patent attorneys and much more, because problem solving often only starts with the result of the analysis.
