Materials / Metallurgical Testing

Materials Testing:

The importance of materials testing cannot be underestimated. Across every major industry, manufacturers, developers and operators of critically important systems, products and components need to be assured that the materials employed in forming their equipment are up to their intended tasks. That’s why the most diligent method of verifying that the materials companies use in manufacturing processes will perform to expectations and adhere to all applicable regulations is through reliable materials testing.

All the business sectors — from aerospace and defense to consumer goods and construction — must adhere to strict quality control and safety standards. Most of the manufacturers, their business involves a good deal of innovation through research and development and tend to use compatible materials due to competitive pressure, to be the first to market or to showcase their breakthroughs.

Organizations, businesses and consumers place their confidence in materials every day. Materials and metallurgical testing forms the backbone of this relationship between product reliability and the materials that go into making products. We are capable of developing a custom testing program for pre-compliance with international standards or general quality assurance.
