Development & Testing

Mat-Tech Development & Testing (DAT) specialises in developing, optimizing, and testing various joining solutions. Our team of experts is experienced in fluxless soft soldering, lead-free soldering, inductive soldering, high-temperature brazing, and diffusion bonding solutions.

At DAT, we understand that a well-executed development process can significantly reduce costs throughout the entire product lifecycle. This is why we prioritize researching and testing joining solutions to ensure that the joints in your assemblies are the strongest bonds. We believe it is essential to explore the choice of joining solution during the product development stage to explore whether any optimizations are feasible, which can ultimately have a positive impact on the cost and lifespan of the component.

Expert Development, Optimization, and Testing of Joining Solutions at Mat-Tech


Joining innovative solutions, expert advice, and strict testing and measurements to meet your strict requirements at Mat-Tech Development and Testing (DAT)

Optical Microscopy (OM)

Explore the world of microstructures with Mat-Tech’s Optical and Scanning Electron Microscopes. Our Development & Testing department employs the latest microscopy technology to ensure precision and integrity of bond in metal components and joints.

Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) with Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (EDX)

SEM with EDX

In Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), the electron beam is focused on the entire material being examined. The surface is scanned in a specific pattern.

Another method, besides SEM, for determining the chemical composition of materials present is Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX).

Coordinate-Measuring Machine (CMM)

The Coordinate-Measuring Machine (CMM) is a device that measures the geometry of physical objects via a camera. The camera takes a series of pictures at different focal points and determines the height of a point by calculating which focal point results in the sharpest image. The camera moves on three different axes and never touches the component to be measured. Our facility is equipped with a CMM which we use for both development and testing purposes.
