Applying years of experience to design specialized tests for any industry

We’re here to provide you with the customized testing solutions you need to get the data you require. Our experienced team is happy to work with you to design unique evaluations, combining multiple metallurgical disciplines, to measure your specified material properties. From proof load testing of whole components to evaluating specific localized stresses with strain gages, it’s likely we already have the test set-up that you need. If not, we have the knowledge, experience, and resources necessary to set it up quickly and accurately. Our well-equipped machine shop is capable of producing the fixturing necessary for any part to interface it with our test equipment. In addition, our on-site chemical analysis, hardness testing, and metallography capabilities allow us to analyze your samples right at your facility.
