Tensile Testing


Metallurgical Testing Labs prides itself in using state of the art international equipment in the testing of all of its samples. All tensile testing conforms to the latest available specification parameters to ensure that the customer gets accurate results which can be trusted.

The reliability of all tensile machinery is controlled and managed via interlab and intralab comparisons as required by the SANAS ILC programs.

Our machinery is capable of testing in tension and in compression – which allows for the effective testing of welder and procedure qualifications according to international specifications.

MTL runs a state of the art LMS (Lab Management System) aptly named JARVIS. This paperless system communicates directly with the testing equipment which imports the data directly into the final certificate. This significantly reduces the potential for human/operator error.
