Smithers can run metallurgical analysis of steel and aluminum wheels and other components to ensure material properties meet industry standards.  Analyses areas include:
  • Tensile measurements in rim and disk
  • Hardness measurements at the surface and at the midline (Brinell, Rockwell B and C)
  • Material chemistry
  • Macro-structure (grain orientation analysis)
  • Micro-structure (particle dispersion)
  • Crack initiation location
