Failure Analysis of Metallic Materials – Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) Applications
Metallic materials are materials with properties such as luster, ductility, easy conductivity, and heat transfer. They are generally classified into two types: ferrous and nonferrous metals. Ferrous metals include iron, chromium, manganese, etc. . Among them, steel is the basic structural material and is called the “skeleton of industry”. So far, steel still dominates the composition of industrial raw materials. Many steel companies and research institutes use the unique advantages of SEM to solve production problems and assist in the development of new products.
SEM with corresponding accessories has become a favorite tool for the steel and metallurgical industry to conduct research and identify problems in the production process. With the increase in SEM resolution and automation, the application of SEM in material analysis and characterization is becoming more and more widespread
