Metals

Globally, large investments are being made in development of metals products for transportation infrastructure and vehicles, energy production and machinery, building materials and even consumer products. These investments are fueled by the need to develop metals that are lighter, stronger and more durable throughout their use.

To fully understand all of the properties of steel or alloys requires technology with workflows that provide visibility at multiple scales, to reveal structure and composition, as well as any possible defects, in the full context of the area in which they occur.

Materials Scientists working in metals research are using FEI solutions to gain a deeper understanding of not only the physical properties of steel and alloys, but also to be able to predict their performance in real world conditions. Using workflows to gain understanding of structure-property relationships, from macro to atomic scale, these scientists are making the discoveries that are leading to cleaner production, safer, more durable products and new applications for metals.
