Mechanical Testing

Mechanical testing the physical properties of materials, components, and weldments can help determine their durability, enabling valuable insight into how they will perform when Dynamic or Static force is applied. Mechanical tests are designed to indicate whether a specific material or part is suitable for its intended application in accordance with many specifications.

Potential failures or product recalls could be avoided through proper mechanical testing designed to detect erroneous material selection, inadequate machining, faulty weldments, or detrimental exposure that may impact materials. At Quality Testing Services, Inc., our highly trained experts use a wide range of methods to conduct comprehensive mechanical testing by measurement and analysis of physical properties such as tensile strength, elasticity, elongation, bend testing, multiple forms of hardness testing, fracture toughness, impact resistance, stress rupture and fatigue limit.

For more than two decades, Quality Testing Services, has been providing mechanical testing services for our clients in Aerospace, Automotive, Biomedical, Chemical, Commercial, Industrial metal fabrication, Oil & Gas, Metals, Construction, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Welding Institutions, as well as other industry sectors. Our team of experienced, Certified Inspectors can support high-volume mechanical testing from routine tensile, hardness, and charpy impact testing to complex materials analysis and failure investigations.

Quality Testing Services’ team of inspectors have many years of experience and a broad industry knowledge in mechanical testing specifications, including: The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

Quality Testing Services, Inc. provides mechanical testing services, including, but not limited to the following:
