Materials Science offers experienced, multi-discipline consultants focused on providing qualified, relevant expertise and in-depth analysis for those seeking Biomedical, Engineering and Scientific consultation and services. Our vision is to enable passionate engineers and scientists to apply knowledge and pursue innovation.
Our expertise is using science and research to provide innovative solutions and consultation for clients seeking engineering or bio-medical expert opinions and analysis. Our top objective is to provide the most qualified consultation to our clients based on our extensive experience and quality scientific methods.
We strive to make science especially in the field of engineering relevant to our clients.
We believe in upholding the code of ethics set forth by the National Society of Professional Engineers to ensure our clients receive quality service that is ethical and just. We stand for relevant truth and honesty in science as we see it. We use scientifically proven methods to determine if a product is safe for the general public and to identify defects and causation, should they exist.
We know friction, wear and galling of metals, plastics and ceramics.
We provide technical expertise, testing and analysis of friction, gallery and wear analysis, plastic ceramic and composite materials for various industrial and medical applications. We previously authored a guide for medical device designers interested in understanding wear properties, treatment and prevention, and the impact of materials selection of mating surfaces on wear. Our researchers have developed, validated and published methods for quantifying wear of orthopedic hip joint components. Utilizing this technique, over 500 metal-on-metal hip components have been measured, aiding scientists, implant designers and attorneys to understand the failure of these types of devices.
We are experts in analysis of:
We have a Metallurgical Testing Laboratory where our experts perform stress corrosion testing and fatigue corrosion testing. We investigate corrosion involved in industrial failures, vessels and piping systems, heat exchangers, medical devices, electrical components, seals and power plants.
Our experts serve as medical device consultants on the manufacture, design, function, biomaterials and coatings related to medical devices, surgical instruments and implants.
We have provided expert opinions for product liability cases where design and manufacturing defects, biological response, metrology, chemical analysis, mechanical testing and adequacy of warnings were considered. We review documentation covering the manufacturing processes, FDA submissions, adverse event reporting, MAUDE database, testing results and medical records.
We provide 3D imaging & video modeling
Our goal is to use our research to provide improved 3D analysis and imaging solutions for various applications including forensic and crime investigations, 3D modeling from video and still images, mapping and gaming industries, quantitative measurements, autonomous navigation, as well as various surveillance tasks.
Rapid 3D Scanning System for Difficult Objects
The current state of the art for 3D scanning is insufficient for scanning translucent, transparent, specular, and dark objects, which comprise most engineered materials. New technology is currently in testing to provide solutions for scanning these difficult objects, without resorting to the application of a powder coating. This is vital for scanning objects in an assembly line or for scanning injection molds, where foreign substances are not allowed.
Other 3D Analysis Services
Our work includes: 3D scanning, 3D metrology, 3D prototyping, 3D modeling, 3D visualization, 3D rendering services and product analysis.
