Materials & Process Engineering

One of the first areas of work for us was Materials and Process Engineering, an engineering field that is indispensable for almost any company. Materials and processes used in manufacturing a product will determine the success or failure of a project and even a corporation as a whole. AGS-Engineering is committed to serving its customers with expert advice and rapid response at a reasonable price; our rapid growth is a result of our customer's satisfaction. We work with fully equipped accredited laboratories, that have advanced materials test equipment such as scanning electron microscope SEM, EDS with light element detection, metallography, microhardness, photography and video capabilities. Below in the submenus you will find detailed information on each of the services we provide. To summarize briefly, we offer:

  • Design of Materials and Processes

Polymers can be produced in unlimited variations and offer unlimited opportunities

Ceramic and glass materials can withstand extreme environmental conditions with no degradation for many years, decades and centuries

Obtaining the right microstructure of metals and alloys is tricky and can make you either a winner or a looser

We use software modules that provide dedicated tools for the analysis of semiconductor device operation at the fundamental physics level

Composite materials are magical. They can offer properties that are different and more suitable for your application than the constituent materials

Biomaterials comprise whole or part of a living structure or biomedical device which perform, augment, or replace a natural function

We are your one-stop solutions provider for challenging manufacturing process design and development projects

Thin films have properties that are different than the bulk materials they are made of

A multidisciplinary approach to engineering consulting, design, product and process development and more
