Material selection is one of the most important aspects of designing components. Often, however, when a designer develops a product, the importance of proper material selection as well as the process used to manufacture the product can get overlooked or neglected. A product designer may select a material for its corrosion properties, yet fail to evaluate other fundamental factors such as cost, availability, durability or weldability. In many cases when a component wears out, failure analysis determines that the problem is the result of poor material selection.
Thielsch Engineering personnel have over 25 years of hands-on experience in selecting the proper materials and manufacturing techniques for a host of design projects. Our engineers have advanced degrees in Materials Science and have experience in all alloys of metals, ceramics, plastics, concrete, masonry and soils. Additionally, we also have experience in all manufacturing processes, including welding, casting, extruding, tool making, and rolling.
