Ambient & High Temperature Mechanical Testing for Aircraft & Engine OEMs
Our expertise in ambient and high temperature mechanical testing enables you to understand how your materials and components perform in real-life situations.
Lucideon's ambient and high temperature mechanical testing capabilities can be applied to industry or custom standards to enable material behaviour to be assessed. Safety is a critical factor within the aerospace industry which is why our testing simulates complex real-life loading scenarios. Our years of expertise, partnered with state-of-the-art ISO 17025 and Nadcap-compliant facilities, enables us to test and characterise the properties of your materials under standard and product-specific loading configurations.
What makes us different?
- We have extensive knowledge and experience of testing metal structures and components within landing gears, aircraft structures, engines, and wheels and braking systems
- 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 are solution providers – giving you answers when the unexpected occurs.
We have a wide range of mechanical testing capabilities from sub-ambient (-130°C) to high temperature (1650°C) including:
- Bend testing
