AbstractThis paper relates to an upgraded Industrial tracked vehicle which was found with a failed Balance arm during disassembly. The failure analysis of an actual Balance Arms surface was carried out using Fractography and Non Destructive testing techniques to dig out the root cause. The analysis revealed microscopic signatures categorically pointing towards post failure surface mechanical damage. The factor causing to promote failure was improper manufacturing i.e. casting which was further attributed to MnS inclusions.
