A History of Expertise and Innovation
RJ Lee Group has assessed environmental issues since the early 1980s when our Energy Technology Consultants (ETC) pioneered the recognition of specific air quality patterns. We developed a cutting-edge technique for identifying, measuring, and characterizing particles in the air using computer-controlled scanning electron microscopy (CCSEM).
RJ Lee Group has worked with clients in various industries, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to assess and provide solutions for environmental factors that could affect our health. Our services have grown over the years, from setting controls for unbound nanoparticles (UNP) to designing and building test chambers to simulate specific environmental conditions.
Today we offer our expertise for our clients’ environmental and compliance concerns and perform rigorous assessment and management of potential environmental risks.
When products or components fail, it's not just a setback; it's a puzzle waiting to be solved. RJ Lee Group, your trusted partner in materials failure analysis, meticulously investigates every step of the manufacturing process, from material selection to the final product, to uncover the root causes of failure.
Our team of experts begins by closely examining the failed product, engaging in a dialogue with you to understand the circumstances surrounding the failure, the operating conditions, and the maintenance history. We meticulously identify the mode of failure and any material characteristics that may have contributed to the issue. Equipped with these insights, we work alongside you to minimize or eliminate the factors that led to failure.
Our experts have provided failure analysis consulting in a vast array of scenarios, from the intricate micro-level of failed semiconductors to identifying flaws in massive hot-worked mill rolls spanning 10 feet in diameter. Each client receives our tailored recommendations for corrective and preventive actions, reducing the risk of future failures and optimizing performance.
Equipped with a comprehensive materials characterization laboratory, our team of highly skilled scientists collaborates with clients across various industries to identify the underlying causes of failures at every stage of production, development, and operational products. RJ Lee Group also serves as an impartial third-party laboratory, providing objective assessments of warranty claims. Our clients highly regard the reliability of the data we generate and the valuable insights offered by our scientists – all delivered within the required timeframe to meet their business needs.
We collaborate with our clients to continually enhance their products throughout their life cycle, allowing them to gain and maintain a competitive advantage in a rapidly evolving regulatory environment. Our team of experts thoroughly assesses manufacturing processes and products to identify issues, mitigate risks, and prevent future occurrences.
