Hi-Tek Mfg. has a metallurgical lab capable of viewing, evaluating and documenting sample mounts from parts. The advantage to having these in-house capabilities is being able to provide almost immediate feedback to the manufacturing operations when developing new work scopes and setting machining parameters. Additionally, interruptions to production scheduling is minimized when process monitoring is required to fulfill material and significant process requirements. Sectioning, mounting, polishing, etching and evaluating are all part of the Hi-Tek lab offerings.
