Ambient & High Temperature Mechanical Testing for Engine and Turbine Blade OEMs
Ambient and high temperature mechanical testing is a key technique used to understand how materials used in the manufacture of engines perform in real-life situations.
Understanding the performance of materials and components in elevated temperature environments is a standard and essential part of any design and manufacturing process. Our knowledge and experience conducting ambient and high temperature mechanical testing enables us to characterize the properties of your materials and provide validation for your final products. Our years of expertise, partnered with state-of-the-art ISO 17025 and Nadcap compliant facilities, makes us the perfect partner for your testing needs.
What makes us different?
- Our experts have comprehensive knowledge and experience of testing metal alloys, coatings, fan blades and compressors
- We act as an extension of your internal capabilities, complementing your knowledge and solving any problems that may exist – saving you time, money and resources
- We provide test results and solutions when the unexpected occurs.
Our mechanical testing capabilities range from sub-ambient (-130°C) to high temperature (1650°C) including:
- Bend testing
- Charpy impact
- Coating bond strength
- Flexural strength
- Gardner impact
- Hardness (Brinell, Knoop, Rockwell, Shore, Vickers)
- Shear strength
- Stress rupture
- Tensile strength
- Poisson's Ratio.
