Damage types

Failure analysis

In the case of damage to a wide variety of components and materials from the automotive, mechanical engineering, medical technology, construction, electrical engineering... sectors, the GWP experts conduct root cause research in the damage analysis laboratory using hybrid power bundles and various material analyses. In this way, we help producers and suppliers to reliably identify the causes of damage, prevent future production stoppages or even recalls by preventing damage, and improve product quality through future improvement measures.


The elucidation and evaluation of corrosion damages require a comprehensive assessment of the present system, which consists of component and medium. In order to understand the damage mechanism materials, environmental conditions and interactions are characterized by extensive laboratory tests. GWP offers with our experts, environmental simulations, corrosion tests, fractographic reviews, analytical material characterizations and metallographic investigations a complete package to solve your problem. In addition, the elaboration of a reasonable loss prevention completes our offer.
