TUV Rheinland Rail Sciences Inc. (TUV RSI), a subsidiary of TÜV Rheinland North America Holding Inc., has upgraded and moved its Omaha testing and metallurgical analysis laboratory to a new facility in nearby La Vista, NE. The facility allows TUV RSI to continue providing its range of applied mechanical and materials engineering services, along with additional offerings such as advanced chemical analysis, which is expected to be available within the next two to three months after the lab’s new glow discharge spectrometer is installed. Testing services the laboratory provides include: failure analysis, metallography, nondestructive testing (NDT), SEM and optical microscopy, mechanical (tensile, fatigue, impact) testing, corrosion analysis, and chemical analysis. It also offers FEA, new product development assistance, and accident reconstruction and expert witness testimony. Typical users of the lab, according to TUV RSI, are aerospace, automotive, and general industrial manufacturers; materials and component manufacturers; pressure vessel manufacturers; and railways and railroad suppliers.
