Reliable mechanical testing with fast turnaround times

A key factor in material quality control is specification conformance, which is often determined by measuring physical and mechanical properties. Whether your specification requires a material’s strength, impact resistance, ductility, or hardness, Anderson Laboratories is here to help. Our full-service machine shop is able to process test specimens from a wide variety of submitted samples, providing fast turnaround times even at high volumes. Our mechanical testing services comply with ASTM, ASME, ISO, and EN testing standards in addition to evaluating properties to any in-house or customer specification.
