Testing services provided on-site in our Willenhall, West Midlands based laboratory include:
Chemical Analysis testing is essential in establishing the exact alloy composition of any material purchased or manufactured. It provides assurance when it comes to performance as well as the mechanical, physical and corrosion properties of materials. Liberty Testing Technologies has experts that perform spectrographic analysis on many alloy types, including steels, aluminium, copper and nickel.
Mechanical Testing is widely used to determine the suitability of materials for their final application and behaviour under certain conditions as well as for quality control purposes. Using our sample preparation workshop, the business can perform the following types of tests:
Tensile tests at ambient temperatures – during the test the material samples are subjected to controlled tension to determine the point of failure;
Impact tests to sub-zero temperatures (-196ᵒC) evaluates the strength of the material when subjected to stresses.
The hardness tests performed at Liberty Testing Technologies (Brinell, Vickers and Rockwell) measure the material’s resistance to deformation.
Bend testing deforms the material until a bend is formed without fractures thus measuring ductility and soundness.
