The mechanical testing structural, physical and mechanical assessment of materials and products. Tests are carried out under environmentally controlled conditions to ensure that the materials and products meet specifications and fit their intended purpose.

With MIL workshops, purpose-built test equipment and a highly trained team of experts, the mechanical testing laboratory can provide the following services:

Services Include

  • Tensile strength
  • Impact strength
  • Hardness

The tests are performed according to internationally recognised standards, such as ISO ISO/IS, American (ASTM), Japanese (JIS) or European (EN, DIN, BS, etc.).

More About The Tests

Clamp a single piece of any metal on each of its ends and pull it apart until it breaks. This measures how strong it is (tensile strength) and how stretchy it is (elongation).

determines the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture. This absorbed energy is a measure of a given material's toughness and acts as a tool to study temperature-dependent brittle-ductile transition. It is to determine whether the material is brittle or ductile in nature.

The exact opposite of a tensile test. This is where you compress an object between two level plates until a certain load or distance has been reached or the product breaks.

This is a compression test where you support a length of material by spanning it across two supports on each end. There is nothing supporting the middle portion underneath of it. Then you press down from above directly in the middle of the span of material until the supported material breaks or reaches a specific angle. This test measures how strong the material in flexure (flexural strength) and how stiff it is (flexural modulus).
