Mechanical testing is accomplished by forcing a part or materials sample to fail by the application of various types of mechanical loads. In static mechanical testing the rate of loading is generally low. These tests are also known as destructive tests because during testing part or sample may break in to two or several parts. In contrast, non-destructive testing does not affect the part’s future usefulness and leaves the part and its component materials intact.
Capability – At TTL, we have capabilities to test materials and products under a variety of static loading conditions. The most common static mechanical tests are:
Most of the above tests are typically done at ambient conditions but can also be done at elevated temperature to understand the material behavior at relevant service temperatures.
Touchstone is committed to providing its customers with quality, reliable test results. That is why we have undertaken the rigorous steps needed to meet and secure the most stringent of test lab accreditations including ISO/IEC 17025, NADCAP 7101 (Materials Test Lab) and NADCAP 7122-I (Non-Metallics Materials Testing).
