Mechanical Testing

You have a number of considerations when selecting a mechanical testing provider. 

  • Do they understand my specific needs?
  • Can they turn around testing quickly?
  • Is their pricing competitive?
  • Can they provide technical explanations to help me if my items fail in testing? 

Metals, alloys, polymers, plastics, and other materials all possess unique properties. A mechanical analysis can include testing strength, hardness, ductility, impact resistance, elongation, and stress. Mechanical testing allows you to determine the suitability of each material for intended application, life expectancy, or resolve failure/contamination issues. 

We have metallurgical and materials science engineers supporting our testing technicians, which is a valuable resource if a sample does not meet its mechanical testing requirements. In addition, we have a complete machine shop “in-house” that prepares all of your test specimens. Due to this, we are not subservient to other vendors and can therefore be sure of our response time.  As a quality mechanical testing provider, we strive to support you in all cases.
