Product failure analysis

Product failure analysis is an important discipline in the production industry and it is used in development of new products and improvement of existing products on the market. 

Complex problems on the production line are not easily solved. In such cases, often the companies do not have enough resources, knowledge and analytical methods to ensure a  comprehensive approach to the problem. LOTRIČ Metrology laboratories are your partner in problem-solving, using chemical and mechanical methods in the field of chemistry, mechanics, polymer technology and metallurgical sciences.
