Our team offers regular production checks, comparative analysis, extensive R&D support, and thorough investigation when metallic and nonmetallic parts fail. We take pride in our experience with different vehicle life cycles; our endurance testing is applicable for cars of all sizes. With lifecycle and endurance testing, it is easier to assess the reliability of cars and their components.
X-RAY CT SCANNING
We offer fast, non-destructive inspection methods such as 2D X-ray and 3D X-ray CT scanning.
The following is a list of primary ASTM standards used by our engineers. Please note, there are additional standards.
If you have questions about these standards, or another standard that’s not listed, don’t hesitate to contact our engineers.
Our experts perform this testing under ambient or controlled conditions to determine the tensile strength, yield point elongation, and other tension-related properties of your material.
