Mechanical Testing

Capacity from 100kN to 1,000kN

The Mechanical Testing Labs at Westmoreland Mechanical Testing & Research

At Westmoreland Mechanical Testing & Research, (WMT&R) tension and compression tests are conducted on an impressive range of machines with capacities from 100 Newtons to 1,000kN Testing is conducted in various atmospheres (Argon, Vacuum, Corrosive Mediums) at cryogenic, ambient, and elevated temperatures (-267°C to +1200°C). Our proprietary testing software provides us with the capability to run standard tests plus full stress/full strain tests at various strain rates, crosshead speeds, load ranges, and strain ranges as your requirements demand.

WMT&R machines all test specimens onsite, thereby eliminating the delay of out-sourcing. Our reputation for quality machining and superior turnaround times brings us production work from other laboratories and mills. With our advanced in-house capabilities, and substantial engineering experience, we are known as specialists in low stress grinding and machining subsize specimens to very close tolerances.
