Mechanical Testing

Static and fatigue testing at room and elevated temperatures are conducted in the mechanical testing laboratory. Our service does not only include testing results but also comparison to standard specifications and interpretations as well as technical consultancy. We are specialized in performing testing of small specimens from thin cast components.

SERVICES

ACCREDITED TESTING PROCEDURES

Static testing:

  • Tensile tests at room temperature on round or flat specimens (EN ISO 6892-1), test method A (strain-rate-controlled) or B (stress-rate-controlled)
  • Tensile tests at elevated temperatures up to 900°C (EN ISO 6892-2)
  • Compression tests (DIN 50 106) at room temperature and elevated temperatures
  • Penetration wedge tests (VDG standard P340) on grey cast iron GJL

Hardness testing:

  • Brinell (ON EN ISO 6506-1)
  • Vickers (ON EN ISO 6507-1)
  • Rockwell (ON EN ISO 6508-1)

Fatigue testing:

  • Rotating bending fatigue tests (DIN 50 113) at room temperature and elevated temperatures
  • Uniaxial fatigue tests (DIN 50 100) at room temperature and elevated temperatures

 SPECIAL TESTING PROCEDURES NOT COVERED BY ACCREDITATION
