we are the advanced materials go-to
Increasing industrial demands for materials to withstand high temperatures, high temperature gradients, high heat cycles, high wear, and high impact require application of new materials. We develop such materials.
what we do
We develop materials required to improve the likelihood of designing, developing, and manufacturing successful new products. Such development efforts are important in view of the significant role that materials play in the success of a product and the many requirements that must be met during product development and manufacturing, influencing performance, reliability, and cost of the product.
We engage in decisions that include selections of product design concept, materials, manufacturing processes, and suppliers from the technical and materials engineering perspectives.
We cover applicable design requirements and the process of verifying that materials do indeed satisfy all design and capable manufacturing process requirements.
Our focus is on design for X approaches when it comes to developing advanced materials. We take into account various design considerations such as design for manufacturing, design for reliability, and design for environmental variables..
Whenever conventional metallic materials prove to be ineffective for a particular application at extreme operating conditions, we are able to use advanced materials such as metal/matrix (MMC) or ceramic/matrix (CMC) composites as thermal, oxygen, or wear (T/O/W) resistance at operating conditions would require. If high strength and toughness are also called for, we would provide thin layers of these materials as barrier coatings on appropriate metallic substrates to meet the T/O/W resistance requirements.
Whenever sharp property mismatches and delamination of the coatings from the substrate in the thin-layered structures prove to be a problem, we have the necessary expertise to develop appropriate graded materials with properties gradually changing from that of ceramic to metal to meet such requirements.
Explosions in chemical factories, in-flight disintegration of aircrafts and space vehicles, fatigue and fracture of medical devices and other such failures have often dire consequences. Component failures result from a combination of factors involving materials science, mechanics, thermodynamics, corrosion, and tribology. The prompt investigation of the failures in order to ascertain their causes, and taking remedial action to prevent their recurrence are of great importance. MaxTek International provide invaluable expertise and enormous resources to help identify the cause, and improve design and reliability to prevent such failures from reocurring. Understanding machinery deterioration and improving equipment maintenance and reliability are what we do.
