Mechanical testing can be used to analyze the behaviors, strengths and weaknesses of a material or component. Mechanical testing (a form of destructive testing) can reveal elasticity and inelasticity of a material or component through the application of force.


A mechanical test can assist in identifying if a material or component is acceptable for its intended purpose through tensile strength, stress, elongations, hardness, fracture analysis, and impact resistance.


Within our lab, we can test many materials that include carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, copper, ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic materials.

Our fully equipped A2LA accredited mechanical testing lab (3805.02) has many capabilities Including:

  • Bend Testing – Pipe and Tube
