H.C. Starck operates a proprietary range of design, modeling, and simulation services founded on over 100 years’ experience in materials processing and custom engineering. This development process bridges the company’s unmatched expertise with customer design and manufacturing processes. Industry needs can be addressed with absolute confidence, with enhanced modeling and simulations providing quantitative insights into material properties under processing conditions. This feeds back to the design process, providing actionable insights to optimize quality assurance and control processes.

This world-class research and development (R&D) chain is supported by a worldwide network of state-of-the-art laboratories and testing facilities. The primary focus of H.C. Starck laboratories is the continual refinement of the core product and material portfolio. This singular drive is in keeping with the company’s commitment to quality and innovation. That same sense of constant fine-tuning is also applied to customer needs and requirements.

H.C. Starck Design, Modelling & Simulation Services

H.C. Starck R&D facilities routinely conduct a broad range of material tests to glean the best possible understanding of technical materials in various conditions. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Finite element analysis (FEA).
  • Grain size analysis.
  • Hydro testing.
  • Helium leak analysis.
  • Metallographic characterization.
  • Particle count.
  • Ultimate tensile strength (UTS) testing.
  • Ultrasonic testing.

Using advanced modeling and simulation software, H.C. Starck can reliably predict the performance of products as complex as glass melting components and rotary sputter targets. The stress-strain distribution of plates during rolling processes can be characterized. Fatigue analysis, crystallographic deformation, thermodynamic properties under extreme use conditions. Myriad complex material properties can be reliably explored, evaluated, and optimized without expending significant materials or time on costly R&D that can now be accurately conducted using modeling and simulation.
