Description

The IncoTest laboratories have test equipment which provides a comprehensive determiation of the mechanical properties of engineering materials. Tests are performed to national, international and clients' specifications on a range of products including bar, sheet, wire, tube and fasteners. AMBIENT TENSILE TESTING The mechanical properties of materials are evaluated using computer controlled tensile testing machines incorporating the very latest software, capable of testing a wide range of forms, from very fine wire and strip to precision machined test pieces. Tests can also be performed on fastener components to full section bar and tube. NON-AMBIENT CHARPY TESTING ELEVATED TENSILE TESTING TO 1,200˚C The mechanical properties of materials are evaluated using computer controlled tensile testing machines incorporating the very latest software, capable of testing a wide range of forms, from very fine wire and strip to precision machined test pieces. Tests can also be performed on fastener components to full section bar and tube. Tensile tests are performed up to 1,200˚C. IMPACT Charpy - standardized high-strain rate test which determines the amount of enery absorbed by a material during fracture. This absorbed energy is a measure of a given material's toughness and acts as a tool to study temperature-dependent ductile-brittle transition. Izod is an ASTM standard method of determining impact strength. A notched sample is generally used to determing impact strength. HARDNESS The mechanical properties of materials may be determined by indentation hardness tests. Vickers, Brinell, low load Brinell, Rockwell and superficial Rockwell tests can be performed. BEND Sheet or tube tested up to 20mm thickness through a variety of form.
