Laboratory of an Engineering Profile equipment

In 2008 more than 200 million tenge from budget funds were spent for establishing laboratory. University handed to laboratory stock unique equipment of world manufacturers.

1. JEM-2100 Transmission Electron Microscope.

From 50 to 1 500000 multiple zoom of microscope allows completely study crystal structure of material, including morphology and features of crystal structure, type features and distribution of different defects of crystal structure (grain boundaries, packing defects, dislocation and different combination of point defects), also to carry out analysis of particles and different inclusions extracted from alloys (including primary blowholes, vacuum), study domain structure.

Objects for studying with transmission microscope: highly dispersive powder, settled on membrane after special procedure, oxide scale - foil, metal scales, thin scales derived through chemical attenuation of massive objects, replica, i.e. thin scale, which reproduces surface relief of studied object.


2. Scanning (raster-type) electron microscope JSM 5910.

It allows observing surface topography owing to its high range of focus setting. Also it provides research of fine structure details. It provides studying and stereoscopic pictures of structure configuration. Microscope meant for studying of super-fine structure on crystallographic plane level. It defines quantitative and qualitative composition of phases and residual stress during phase transformation.


3. Radiation diffractometer for general use “DRON-6”.

It is meant for radiological-diffraction analysis of crystal and amorphous materials in research, school and plant laboratories, production control lines.

With the help of radiological-diffraction analysis it’s able to define or estimate: quantitative and qualitative phase composition; low level cell parameters; fine structure parameters – quantity and expansion areas of coherent scattering and microstrain, concentration of deformation and twin package defect (extrinsic defect); density and distribution of dislocations; macrostress quantity (strain of 1 type); amorphous and crystal phase content; texture; single crystal directions and other parameters.


4. Chemical composition analyzer “Spectrolab”.

It’s designed for defining chemical composition of alloys on the basis of iron, aluminum, copper and zinc with 20 addition elements (Cr, V, W, S, P, C, Nb, Mo, Ni, Ti, As and other). It is desk emission spectrometer for analyzing metals and alloys with excitation of spectrum in spark and/or arc and semi-conductor CCD-detectors. The optimal wave band is from 175 to 550 nm, plus detectors for alkali and alkali-earth elements.


5. Light microscope “Leica”.

It’s for studying of phase composition and structural features of metals and alloys with x100-1000 zooming. The microscope is equipped with attachment for determination of microhardness of separate phases, also it has digital camera for automatic photographing of microstructure.

For educational purposes it’s equipped with color video system “SONY” and television screen, it projects image from microscope.


6. Light metallographic microscope “Olympus”.


7. Measuring roentgen system “Rikor”.

It’s meant for measuring angular positions of diffraction peaks which appearing from effect of X-radiation directed on object of analysis. The received angular positions of peaks will be the basis for determination of phase structure of researched material.

The field of application – quality control of microelectronics material, cement, chemical, mining-and-processing, pharmaceutical, and metallurgy production industries.


8. Educational universal twisting tensile-testing machine MI-40KU.

Its purpose is testing samples for pulling, pressing and twisting. Machine is used with IBM – compatible palmtop computer, and provides plotting on a screen according to force and moment of deformation through RS 232 interface during pulling or pressing samples with force up to 40 kN and loading rate 0,5-60 mm/min, and during twisting with moment up to 200 Nm and loading rate 0,03-6 rpm.

The device allows to automatically take next measurements: values of linear displacement of crosshead; current load values; values of angular displacement of gripping, torsion; current moment value.


9. Universal measuring microscope UIM-23 (UIM-200E type).

It’s meant for measuring linear and angular dimensions of different products in rectangular and polar coordinate. Specifically with the help of this microscope various threaded samples, edge tools, form gages and templates, cams, tapers (cones), taps, chasers, and other items can be measured.


10. Chopper “Lobotom-3”.

Chopper of high-accuracy is meant for accurate sawing metals with hardness 30-2000 HV without deformation. Chopper makes shear with smooth minimally deformed surface. Abrasive wet cutoff provides minimal damage of surface, which eases and accelerates further preparation of samples.


11. A high-accurate chopper “Accutom-5”.


12. . A grinding and polishing machine “Tegra Pol – Tegra force” from “Struers”.

It is meant for automatic grinding and polishing of high quality. Machine uses a metal-backed grinding discs and polishing cloths combined with a magnetic supporting MD-system.

The machine provides materialographic preparation of materials with 30-2000 HV hardness.


13. The electrolytic thinning device.



The main goal of LEP is developing of fundamentals and technologies for creation of promising new materials for metallurgy and engineering industry, complex ferroalloy production and industrial waste utilization.
