Through the use of automatic microscopes hundreds of measurements can be taken on a single work piece.
The results of these measurements ensure our customers the highest level of measurement confidence possible.
The Bend and Free Recovery (BFR) method is applied for measuring the active Af temperature of NiTi devices.
Utilizing DSC, MeKo determines the transformation temperatures (Af temperatures) of shape memory alloys like NiTi (Nitinol).
With our EDS System material compositions and surface contaminations are analysed.
The EIS is typically applied to measure the AC-current and AC potential.
In corrosion testing, EIS is standard practice for measuring the polarization resistance (Rp) of corroding systems.
With potentiodynamic measurements the passivation and corrosion resistance of products are analysed in accordance with ASTM F2129.
Using Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM), MeKo investigates devices with high resolution and a magnification up to 30,000x.
At MeKo, we know how to change the mechanical properties of implant materials by means of heat treatment.
To document the results, MeKo does not only check the time-temperature-curves of each heat treatment but also verifies the results by tensile tests.
We take cross sections of devices in order to analyse grain structures, heat affected zones of laser welds, ...
At MeKo we measure the surface roughness in accordance with DIN EN 4758.
