Laboratory

To further enhance our services to our clients, mechanical testing equipment was purchased in 2001. The universal testing machine and impact tester were soon followed by the purchase of microscopes, hardness testers and a host of metallurgical sample preparation equipment. A fully-fledged laboratory capable of mechanical testing, metallography or a complete metallurgical evaluation/investigation is therefore available for every eventuality.

Our latest acquisition, a Belec portable spectrometer, enables us to identify incoming feed stock or Positive Material Identity on the clients' final product.
