Bolt and Fastener Failure Analysis

Bolts and fasteners hold our world together, and we rely on them to stay put for decades of service. Unfortunately, they don’t always last that long and when they fail, it’s often a BIG problem! We have analyzed hundreds of bolt failures and have the experience to help you identify the problem and find an appropriate solution. The process including visual and microscopic analysis of the bolts, fracture surface analysis to determine the mode of failure and initiation point, electron microscopy, chemical analysis, and/or mechanical testing, depending on the scope of what you need.

Each analysis is run in parallel with other analyses, allowing us to consistently provide reports in a matter of days or hours rather than taking weeks. Next time you need a failure analysis investigation, give us a call to help you find appopriate and effective solutions!
