Broad Range of Mechanical Testing Services
Measuring the mechanical properties of materials and components can help you determine their durability and give you insight into performance and suitability. Ensuring that materials and components fit their intended applications, mechanical testing services include tension and compression, both under static and dynamic loading conditions, bending, torsion, multi-axial tension-torsion, impact and crushing, fracture toughness, fatigue, and many more.
TECHSPERT mechanical testing lab offers a wide range of testing to evaluate composites, polymers, metals, additive manufactured materials and finished products. Whether you need to test to a standard method or develop a custom testing program, we are equipped to provide the answers and data you need.
Whatever the testing objective, TECHSPERT is well-equipped to provide the optimal solution to your challenging testing requirements.

Custom design of test fixtures and mounting solutions
TECHSPERT has a versatile inventory of test fixtures to meet a wide range of testing requirements. For non-standard custom testing, engineers will work closely with you to develop new and/or specialized mounting fixtures fitting your particular test application.
Application Examples: Rivet Joint Lap Shear Tension Strength
Tensile lap shear test of a rivet joint assembly. In-situ camera monitoring is used to record the overall mechanical behaviour during the loading of the sample together with synched data capture animations.
Application Examples: Dynamic Composite Tube Crushing Test
Composite winded tubes are crushed to analyze the energy absorption properties of materials. In-situ high speed camera monitorring records the full failure crushing event of the tubes and can be linked to synchronized load, displacement, speed and acceleration data.
