Anamet has metallurgical and materials engineers on staff that specialize in materials engineering and failure analysis of medical devices. We offer in-house laboratory testing, analysis, and consulting services. Anamet engineers are able to identify failure modes associated with corrosion, mechanical damage, structural defects, materials selection, heat treatment, etc.

    Both non-destructive and destructive analysis may include some of the following analytical techniques:
  • Metallography and microstructural evaluation
  • Corrosion product analysis and corrosion mechanism identification
  • Fracture mode determination
  • Macro and micro digital imaging
  • Large chamber scanning electron microscope (SEM)
  • Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS)
  • Hardness measurements (Knoop, Vickers, Rockwell, Brinell)
  • Chemical analysis
  • Mechanical testing
  • Cryogenic and elevated temperature test conditions
  • Nitinol testing per ASTM F 2516
