Problems We Solve Component failure is usually due to a sequence or combination of events which can initiate from the design and choice of materials through to manufacturing processing and assembly including the application of heat, welding and grinding, as well as machining and distortion of the part due to bending, rolling or forging. In services conditions can also contribute to the failure of a part such as variation in temperature and environmental conditions, SHOW GUIDE - AUGUST 2018 uneven, high or low cyclic loads or stress profile, compression, torsion and bending as well as foreign object damage. Matching the maintenance needs of the component to its operating conditions and environment is also important to reduce the effects of ageing and wear.
