Mechanical Testing Laboratory


The Mechanical Testing Laboratory carries out tension tests, compression and impact tests, hardness and cyclic testing, and other tests. The materials in question are predominantly metals and plastics. Our research and development activities focus on the manufacturing and testing of ‘miniature’ specimens which can be made using only small amounts of material.

Key Activities:

  • Hardness testing
  • Fatigue testing
  • Mechanical properties testing
  • Fracture mechanics and material resistance
