Mechanical Testing

Using mechanical testing methods, we can help you find out if the material you’re using is suitable for its intended purpose.

Our team are experts so you don’t have to be.  Our specialist engineers will manage your mechanical testing project.  They’ll make sure it’s done right, from start to finish.  You’ll get everything you need, every step of the way.

We’ll take care of every aspect of your material with our intricate processes.  We’ll measure things such as hardness, tensile strength, elasticity, fracture toughness and stress rupture, amongst others (see our list below, for more).

Testing is usually carried out to produce data that could then be used in the design process of equipment. This data is absolutely essential, especially when manufacturing equipment.  It reveals the limit values that a structure or a material can withstand without failure.

Our comprehensive range of testing techniques include:

  •  Hardness
  • Compression
  • Fracture Toughness
  • Creep
  • Charpy
  • Proof Load
  • Tensile
  • Impact
  • Fatigue
  • Torque
  • Bend
  • Shear

To complement our mechanical testing services, we can also certify welders and weld procedures to both European and American standards in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements.
