OUR ACTIVITIES: METALLOGRAPHY
Established in 1961 in France, PRESI is recognised as one of the leading global players in the manufacturing and distribution of machines and consumables in the field of metallography and materialography. As a top performer in quality control and material analyses, PRESI machines and consumables set themselves apart by their quality and highly technical specifications, in response to increasingly stringent requirements.
The analysis and the metallographic preparation
Metallography consists in determining and studying the properties and the nature of the structure of the metals but also in highlighting a possible heat treatment or surface treatment. Before carrying out a metallographic analysis, a succession of specific operations is necessary in order to obtain a suitable examination surface.
This is the metallographic preparation. From sample collection (cutting) to microscopic revelation, PRESI offers a complete range that answers to all the metallographic preparation steps of a sample: cutting, mounting, polishing, hardness and microscopy.
A metallography expert by your side
The strength of PRESI lies in its expertise, its flexibility, its responsiveness, and its impeccable customer service. We pay attention to the requests and challenges of our customers, irrespective of the size of the company or the industry sector from which the request arises.
