Defence mechanical testing

Confidence through knowledge

Our expertise is available around the globe, with a network of experts and specialist facilities conducting a range of destructive and static testing including tensile and charpy impact tests, to more technically demanding fatigue and fracture toughness tests. This range of routine testing to complex programmes requires advanced inspection technology and, where required, the test specimen can be conditioned or aged before the tests are performed.

Tests on materials, components or products are completed within a controlled environment at temperatures from -80º C to + 1000 ºC and controlled humidity. Supported by dedicated machine shops, we can ensure rapid sample processing, providing peace of mind and cost-effective solutions within your timescales.
