Fast and flexible stress measurement services for material characterization (Covalent Metrology).

Many mechanically processed components face residual stress problems, which makes them susceptible to fatigue or mechanical failure in their operational environment. Stress measurement techniques have been developed to evaluate quantitatively the magnitude of the residual stress. X-ray diffraction, a non-destructive technique, has been used for decades, largely because it does not alter the original state of the sample. The automated Rigaku Smartlab diffractometer makes stress analysis much easier and faster, requiring minimal user input and experience.
