Testing of metals

Our services

  • Mechanical characterization of metals to determine characteristic values such as modulus of elasticity, yield strength and tensile strength (e.g. according to DIN EN ISO 6892), also temperature and strain rate dependent
  • Fatigue tests (HCF and LCF) and also thermomechanical fatigue tests
  • High temperature tests: Tests on round and flat specimens in the temperature range from -40 °C to 900 °C
  • Mechanical characterization of additive-manufactured metal structures
  • Metal testing using torsion, bending, tensile, compression and shear tests
  • Use of digital image correlation in our Testing Laboratory for high-resolution deformation measurement
  • Materialographic studies to analyse the microstructure and microscopic examination of fracture surfaces
