Quality Materials Testing & Calibration Laboratory
All the services, information and certified reporting you need are available from Laboratory Testing’s one-stop” materials testing and calibration laboratory:
- Assure your materials meet industry specifications or performance criteria
- Verify material composition
- Determine the cause of a metal failure
- Certify the accuracy of measuring instruments or product dimensions
Our laboratory has solutions to all your materials testing, nondestructive testing (NDT), dimensional inspection, calibration, specimen machining and failure analysis requirements. Computerized, state-of-the-art equipment guarantees efficient and reliable results. Chemists, engineers, machinists and certified inspectors work throughout our lab to meet your expectations for accuracy, timely turnaround and convenience with every order.
Be certain your materials and end products will perform for their intended use and endure for their expected life. LTI inspects and tests metal parts and products in all shapes and sizes, tests plastics and other polymers, and also analyzes metals, powdered metals, ores, ferroalloys, composites, polymers and ceramics. Our materials testing lab perform a wide-array of services including Mechanical Properties Testing, Metallurgical Analysis, Chemical Testing, Corrosion Analysis and Polymer Testing. All results are documented in detailed Certified Material Test Reports to meet quality assurance requirements and answer questions about material characteristics, properties and flaws.
Have us locate surface and sub-surface defects on tubing, pipe, barstock, plates, castings and other products of almost any size or shape without harm to the parts or materials. We perform the testing that provides the answers you need — Ultrasonic Inspection, Magnetic Particle Testing, Dye Penetrant Inspection, Radiographic Testing, Hydrostatic Testing and Visual Inspection. All nondestructive (NDT) testing and inspection results are documented for you in an easy-to-read Certified Test Report.
When metal products fail during use, you need to understand the root cause of the problem. In many cases, you also may want input into preventing a recurrence. Laboratory Testing will perform the necessary testing and inspection to provide the answers you need in a comprehensive root cause analysis report that lists all findings from our investigation.
Many types of destructive testing require test specimens made to industry specifications or specific requirements. To save you time, our machinists can prepare the specimens needed for your testing orders. If you do your own testing inhouse, we can provide economical, high quality specimens from metals and many plastics.
Many advanced materials have been created in past years to replace metals in products and components used in a variety of industries. Laboratory Testing Inc. is able to test and analyze these plastics and other polymeric materials by verifying performance characteristics to determine functionality and to predict performance over time. Various types of polymer testing and analysis are used to identify base materials and additives, verify material hardness and tensile strength, and evaluate product features. All test results are documented in detailed Certified Test Reports.
Lab Testing performs first-article and third-party CMM inspection to verify measurement accuracy of surface dimensions, internal and external threads, and special features on machined products, parts and fasteners.
NIST-traceable and A2LA-accredited calibration services are performed in an environment-controlled laboratory at our calibration company, LTI Metrology, to ensure reliable results. LTI Metrology can calibrate most measuring tools, gauges, masters and pressure, torque, force and mass instruments. On-site calibration technicians will come to your facility to calibrate surface plates, optical comparators, hardness testers, balances and instruments that can not be taken out of service for a few days at a time.
