The SONATS laboratory uses destructive and non-destructive methods (X-ray diffraction, incremental hole drilling, mechanical relaxation method etc.) and provides comprehensive expertise of residual stress and analysis of metallic materials.
X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a reliable decades-old technique for the analysis of residual stresses on a wide range of mechanical parts and materials in various industrial sectors.
Incremental hole drilling strain gauge method (Incremental Hole drilling technique) is a semi-destructive method widely used in the energy, aeronautical and land transport sectors.
SONATS is equipped with all the means and tools necessary for metallurgical analysis and controls.
All of our investigative methods can be used to complete an expert analysis, especially for residual stress measurements and dimensional controls.
SONATS provides many ways to control your machined parts:
– Precision roughness meter
– Precision profilometer
– Three-dimensional measuring machine
– Laser scan
