Mechanical Testing

Spectro Research Lab Ventures (P) Ltd.’s Mechanical testing division is well equipped to carry out a number of mechanical tests on various types of metallic and non-metallic materials. Test specimens are meticulously prepared in the machine workshop before conducting tests on them. Testing mechanical properties of a material is extremely important in assessing its potential performance, and also provides an indication of the presence or absence of inherent flaws in the design of the material. A wide variety of standardized mechanical tests exist to check for desired properties, like Tensile strength, Hardness tests, Impact resistance, Fatigue resistance, Ductility, Brittleness etc.

Spectro conducts a number of standardized and customized mechanical tests at its testing location with the use of various state-of-the-art instruments. Spectro uses various national and international standards like IS, ASTM, BS, ISO for conducting its testing activities.

Some of the main mechanical tests carried out by Spectro are:

  • Tensile tests of various metallic items
  • Rockwell (B and C Scales) and Brinell hardness tests
  • Vickers hardness tests
  • Micro hardness Tests
  • Impact tests, Izod, BS & ASTM, upto -196°C
  • Bend tests
  • Tests on reinforcement for concrete Tests on HTS wire
  • Tests on Tubes-Flattening
  • Crushing Tests
