Mechanical Materials Testing

Cornerstone of Structural Materials

Determination of stiffness and resilience of materials


Our services

  • Tensile testing acc. to EN 6892-1
  • Strain and tension-controlled tensile/compression/bending test
  • Wide parameter window (force up to 250kN, temperatures from -160°C to 300°C)
  • In-house production of sample holders for special requirements (for example peeling tension)
  • Brinell hardness testing to complete the mechanical characteristic value profile of materials
