Testing the mechanical properties of Metals reveal the elastic and inelastic behaviors of a material when a force is applied. We are able to determine if a Metal can withstand the common stresses for its intended purpose by measuring elasticity, tensile strength, elongation, hardness, fracture toughness, impact resistance, stress rupture and fatigue limit.
The most common testing is done with a Universal Testing Machine for testing the tensile properties of a Metal specimen (ASTM E8). Tension tests provide information on the strength and ductility of materials under uniaxial tensile stress until the point of fracture. Read More...
Hardness testing is the measure of how resistant a solid matter is to permanent shape change when an indenter is applied at a known force. Check out our range of Rockwell, Brinell, Micro/Macro Vickers and Knoop Hardness Testers.
NextGen metallography equipment is focused on the structure refining of metals and alloys. It specializes in different methods of speci-men preparation including cutting, polishing and grinding.

Universal Testing Machines can be configured for static testing of multiple properties such as tensile, compression, flexure, tearing, peeling, bending and shearing tests. Check out our range of Force Stands, Electromechanical and Servo Hydraulic Universal Testing Machines.
Pendulum Charpy/Izod Impact Testing is a high strain-rate test to determine the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture.
