Troubleshooting


A company using fine refractory metal wire that exhibited poor performance in the field approached PentaMet for assistance. PentaMet performed material and failure analyses, process audits, and process development experiments that ultimately led to a new and improved material whose performance exceeded the traditional material.

A specialty machining company required assistance learning to machine refractory metals. Failure analyses identified the source of, problems and PentaMet’s process recommendations resulted in improved yields and product performance.

A company using refractory metal components in their process was plagued by erratic component lifetime. PentaMet analyzed component failures and microstructures, and provided recommendations for purchasing specifications that resulted in more consistent component performance.
