Setaram engineering and consultancy. Solutions for success.
Not all material characterization challenges can be solved with standard instrumentation or without additional expertise.
Special Developments – Let’s Innovate together
Replicating the true conditions of material use (eg. under high pressure, or in corrosive, reducing or oxidative atmospheres), or working with environmental constraints (eg radioactive test materials) may require customized instrumentation. We manage special development projects in diverse environments and customize any instrument parameter including design, ergonomy, seismic resistance, sensors, operation range, electronics and software. The expertise of our R&D and Engineering teams make special developments a routine procedure for us.

Application development – We work with you to develop your applications
We provide consultancy in the development of diverse applications. For example, applications involving hazardous materials may require specific laboratory organization or special sample conditioning or pre-treatment. We can also advise on ways to extract more information from a single sample and how to develop a deeper understanding of a material’s chemical and physical behavior. Whatever your need you can rely on our team of experts to support you in your Applications development.
Do you have a material characterization challenge that you need support on?
Contract testing – Let us take the strain
You may be experiencing challenges such as limited capabilities and resources. You may be interested in third party materials characterization for accessing new markets, developing new products or methods, or quality control. If so you can rely on our Applications Laboratory.
Our large range of testing techniques, operating conditions and highly skilled staff allows us to continuously undertake contract testing.
We can characterize all the thermal properties of your materials, and combine techniques for optimal analysis.
