First-Rate Mechanical Testing Services

Mechanical testing is a critical part of any product and development process. This enables developers to gain a better understanding of product vulnerability and quality, which helps them establish improved quality control. Tensile strength, fracture toughness, and impact resistance, however, can be complicated for manufacturers and business owners.

JTL America’s team of highly skilled and experienced engineers uses an extensive range of techniques to run comprehensive testing programs for our clients. Trust us to perform independent analysis and measure characteristics of materials or components for industrial applications.

We offer the following testing services:

We perform this test to determine the tensile strength, yield strength, and yield point elongation of your product when stretching loads are applied on it. To put it simply, we test to see if your material will break under tension.

Our engineers apply cyclic loading to your material to understand how it will perform—specifically, its crack initiation and fatigue life—under similar conditions in actual use. Fatigue testing will help you create products that not only meet quality requirements, but are also safe, strong, and extremely durable.

Using state-of-the-art vibration testing machines, we help you ensure that your new product will survive its intended environment. We put the product under calculated stress to test its performance, as well as reveal its hidden design weaknesses, if any.

We perform nanoindentation hardness testing to small volumes of materials to determine a product’s module elasticity and surface and coating hardness. With this test, you will know if your product can resist abrasion, bend, deformation, and scratch.
