MCS Goes Into Space!

MCS have just recently carried out testing for ESR Technology as part of a European Space Agency project.

 The work involved assessing the corrosivity and compatibility of various specialised lubricants on a range of materials to be used in space. Work was carried out using MCS's new controlled humidity cabinet to speed up any possible adverse effects.

Sandberg LLP acquires MCS

We are delighted to announce that since 1 May 2018, MCS has been wholly owned by Sandberg LLP.

MCS aquires XRF analyser to add to services

MCS has recently purchased a Fischerscope XRF analyser. This will enable us to rapidly identify alloy grades, measure coating thicknesses and analyse deposits for elements with atomic no. >12. With a 0.2 mm colimated beam, it will be able to detect impurities within small pits. In addition, we will also be able to assay gold and other precious metals.
