Metallurgy & Metrology Laboratory

The innovation engine of Pulse Technologies, our Metallurgy and Metrology lab is where we take the big questions of the day for discovery, resolution, and sometimes great breakthroughs. It’s a state-of-the-art, fully equipped lab; you’ll be hard pressed to find one like it in the industry.

How will a specific material react under a new process? What’s the slag profile of a new laser machined part? Is there copper being deposited? What happens to this part when we run an electric current through it? When it’s subject to repetitive motion?

At 80,000X, there’s a lot to learn with our Scanning Electron Microscope. Our Electrical and Mechanical Test capabilities, including tensile testing, electrochemical and corrosion testing, also provide us with valuable information during development and validation phases prior to production, as well as help us quickly pinpoint causes during troubleshooting.

We use energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) for troubleshooting material and contaminant issues.

We regularly use our M&M Lab for developing helix assemblies, tips, rings, and electrodes, particularly those involving our Pulse Advanced Technology Coating (PACT®). We make use of our:

  • Contact and optical coordinate measuring machines
  • Scanning electron microscope
  • Energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS)
  • Laser micrometers

Come for a tour. We think you’ll be impressed by the sophistication of our equipment and the knowledge of our advanced innovation team.
