The chief focus for forensic engineers is to determine the cause of failure of any product. At Advantagement, we go far past that to give our customers a great deal more:
- What happened?
- Why did it happen?
- How we can avoid it happening once more?
- Who, if anyone, caused it to happen?
- How much will it cost, and to what extent will it take to retool?
- Are the reported costs and damages reasonable?
Product Failure / Product Liability
What causes products or components to fail?
As manufactured parts and assemblies have increased in sophistication and mechanical complexity over the past few decades, dimensional precision has become more critical, both in the manufacturing processes and in the resultant products and performance. From the initial design through the manufacturing processes, product delivery and implementation all the way to the moment of unfortunate product failure, traces of geometric “evidence” are often left on part surfaces in the form of anomalies and other deformations. Full and exceptionally accurate 3D digitization of part geometry presents these dimensional anomalies in vivid detail.
