Verification and Validation

Our on-site laboratory is equipped with a variety of test rigs, ranging from tensile/compressive loading equipment to dynamic impact resistance.  To complement this we have a wide range of defect monitoring and assessment equipment to enable rapid development of product designs.

Instron 6027

With a selection of standard tensile and compressive test fixtures, alongside bespoke rigs for large test items, we can test components and materials up to a 200kN maximum load.
