Mechanical Testing Services

SGS MIS Testing offers a full range of mechanical testing from all three sites, including a comprehensive machining service. Test types include tensile testing at room and elevated temperature, impact testing from room temperature to -196°C, izod testing, bend, fracture, nick break, hardness testing (Brinell, Vickers and Rockwell) and visual weld inspection. If required, we can offer non-destructive testing (radiography, dye penetrant, magnetic particle and ultrasonics)  and controlled heat treatment (eg stress relieving) of test materials.
