Failure Analysis

Engineering is the use of science, experience, and logic to solve real-world interests.

Failure analysis looks at potential problems before and after they happen.

Failure after the fact investigates what went wrong and resulting in an incident. Fire is often is the consequence.

Failure analysis before the fact consists of research, testing, and evaluation to determine the most suitable process and procedures to accomplish a product. This considers the trade-offs between quality, economics, and time.

Our engineers are exceptionally qualified to address your failure analysis issues.

Our clients are predominantly Fortune 100 companies, but we also have a healthy, vibrant relationship with sole proprietorships.

We provide failure analysis, research, safety, and design support to the energy, legal, and insurance communities.

Failed equipment or components can be sent to the lab for cost-effective, timely analysis by experts. This permits you to pursue projects and claims that otherwise would not be feasible.


Product Development

Our engineers have helped groups in development of products from power cables and oilfield equipment to hi-pressure, hi-temperature, hi-voltage, and hi-current connectors and printed circuit boards.

We have established laboratory resources to provide research, testing, and evaluation of these products.

We can assist you with Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) certification through such organizations as CSA & ETL.
