Mechanical TestingA full range of mechanical testing and procedures are available and are included in our schedule of UKAS accreditation.
Testing facilities include tensile (up to 500kN loads), impact (at ambient and sub zero temperatures) and hardness, complying with various National and International standards and specifications.
Hardness can also be measured on many different scales including Vickers, Rockwell and superficial. Measurements can also be made "on-site" using portable instrumentation.
We can cater for a wide range of materials including sheets, plates, bars, rods, pipes, shafts, bolts, structural sections and castings, ferrous and non-ferrous materials.
Upgrading of steels to higher specifications can also be undertaken by combinations of tensile and impact testing.
