The emphasis of our development efforts is firmly focussed on industrial application.
Innovation in new alloys:
Our flexible processing plant, analytical laboratory and metallography facility provide excellent foundations from which to develop new materials or enhance the performance of existing products.
The technical effort is driven by a highly qualified and experienced team, with support from a capable, well-equipped facility:
LCM has a highly experienced analytical team, we operate:
A highly specified optical microscope is used to characterise the microstructures of alloy products and newly developed materials. This capability can be used to examine the effect of processing conditions and also to gain knowledge of structure—property relationships. The equipment is enhanced by the addition of state-of-the-art digital imaging and analysis software. LCM also has access to electron microscopy facilities through our links with leading University departments.
