Our Customers Say:

“I wanted to take the time to personally thank you for the time and effort that LTI has put into the testing involved with our orders. Your staff has been invaluable over the last several years.  Additionally, the fact that you are now able to perform Fracture Toughness testing in house has already proven priceless in both the turnaround time and in getting my questions answered. I’ve been fortunate to have worked with LTI since 1986 and I have come to think of LTI as an extension of Dubose. I look forward to our continued relationship.”

Dave Stepp,
Quality Assurance Manager

Machining Test Specimens

Tensile Specimen, Charpy Specimen & More

Milling Test SpecimensWhen test specimens are needed for mechanical or corrosion testing, let our machinists do the work. The latest CNC equipment for milling, turning and grinding allows us to prepare the highest quality test specimens quickly and economically, including a round or flat tensile specimen, charpy specimen with a V-notch, impact test specimen and many others for jominy, stress rupture, fracture toughness and more testing. The LTI Machine Shop prepares all test specimens according to ASTM standards (ASTM A370, ASTM E8, ASTM E23) and the requirements of our customers. All test specimen machining is Nadcap accredited.

Laboratory Testing Inc. is a NIST Qualified Manufacturer for Charpy V-notch Impact verification test specimens. Traceability of sample material and test specimens is insured from receipt inspection through the final process in our laboratory machine shop.

Test SpecimensMachining of test specimens is a time-saving convenience for our customers that require a specimen for destructive testing. Our machining capabilities allow the complete order to be processed right at LTI, from receipt of the sample to preparation of the Certified Test Report. Laboratory Testing also provides test specimens to companies that perform their own in-house testing.

Refer to our Sample Size Requirements under the Guidelines section on our Resources page when ordering testing services that require test specimens.
