Metallographic Preparation of Medical Implants – Stents, Orthopedics…

Medical implants are increasingly used today, stemming from newer alloy developments and manufacturing techniques, such as additive manufacturing, necessitating a closer outlook at their microstructure usually with good mechanical strength, wear and corrosion resistant properties. Metallographic preparation of these components allows thorough inspection of microstructures, coatings (mainly hydroxyapatite) and potential imperfections from new manufacturing techniques. …

“Hot Cell” Metallographic Sample Preparation?!

In the highly competitive cutting blades indus­try, it is vital for the blade to have sufficient hardness to retain an edge, while too hard can cause brittle failure. When hardened materials are ground, residual heat may alter the microstructure and soften the blade edge. Testing the hardness of the cutting blades becomes challenging as indents …
