What’s next with surface technologies?

New Treatment, No Problem

Your surface requirements come first. We pay attention to established markets as well as emerging trends, so when our customers bring us their design challenges, we can design a surface treatment that best fits their needs.

How We Do It

Our team of materials scientists, chemists, and engineers cover all aspects of research and product development. An advantage that TES has is that our TURBOCAM International machinists combine their knowledge with our surface engineering efforts, giving us the ability to contribute to your product development from material selection, to machining, all the way to surface finishing.

The team uses an array of in-house testing equipment to characterize performance.

Our lab capabilities include:​

  • Hardness and microhardness surface indenters​
  • Microstructural analysis with etchants​
  • Electrochemical corrosion testing ​
  • High Temperature Tribometer for wear and friction testing ​
  • CMM
  • Tensile Testing


Bradley Crannell

Bradley is the senior Materials Innovation Scientist on staff. His wide-ranging education with degrees in Chemistry, Environmental Biology, Agricultural Soil Chemistry, and Metallurgy have a common theme of understanding and controlling surface reactions in manufacturing and in the field. His experience in mining, dredging, agriculture, manufacturing, laboratories, and more allows him to quickly understand the practical challenges that our customers face.
