MAG-Pi offers a complete range of mechanical testing services. Our experienced test engineers can help you design custom testing programs to evaluate your products. A well-equipped in-house machine shop provides timely preparation of test specimens or any special fixturing.
- Tensile Testing - Tensile testing, or tension testing, is used to determine the behaviour of the metal when it is being pulled. Tensile testing can measure yield strength, proof strength and ultimate tensile strength. We have a range of tensile testing machines and can apply loads from a few newtons to 1,000 kilo newtons, and test up to 600°c.
- Bend Testing - Tests are normally performed on butt welded joints. Either Root and Face bends or Side bends are commonly used, depending upon material thickness.Test specimens are taken transverse to the weld axis, reinforcement is removed to make the specimens flat. Each specimen is placed in the jig and bent 180º over a former, the size of the former is dependent upon the material group.
- Charpy Impact Testing - The Charpy impact test, also known as the Charpy V-notch test, is a high strain-rate test that involves striking a standard notched specimen with a controlled weight pendulum swung from a set height. The impact test helps measure the amount of energy absorbed by the specimen during fracture.
