Catch Problems Before They Cost You
Whether you order testing for raw materials, finished fasteners, or to research quality issues with production, you will benefit from identifying and correcting weaknesses or defects before costly problems occur. Laboratory Testing Inc. offers a broad range of fastener testing and inspection capabilities to keep your business operating efficiently:
Magnetic Particle Inspection and Liquid Penetrant Testing are available to identify surface-breaking discontinuities without damaging your test samples. X-ray Inspection is also offered for more thorough testing.
Fasteners with internal or external threads are dimensionally inspected using CMM and optical inspection methods.
A variety of chemistry services are provided for elemental and impurity analysis, revealing material composition and identifying materials including Spectrometry, ICP-AES, AES, FTIR, Carbon/Sulfur/Nitrogen/Oxygen/Hydrogen Determination & Positive Material Identification (PMI).
A wide-range of micro and macro examination processes are performed including microstructure, grain flow, macro-etch (ASTM E340) and other evaluations.
LTI can determine the mechanical properties of your materials such as strength, hardness and load capacity. Equipment is available to test fasteners of all sizes including tensile machines with capacities from 100 to 400,000 lbs. All types of test specimens can be machined in our Machine Shop.
Our mechanical engineers complete thorough failure investigations to determine the root cause of a product failure. All work and results are documented for you in a Failure Analysis Report.
Laboratory Testing Inc. is more than a materials and fastener testing company. We also provide related services to save you time and simplify your job. Let us prepare any specimens needed for testing or conduct a failure investigation to identify the root cause of a failed fastener. Take advantage of the services offered by LTI Metrology to calibrate and certify the measurement accuracy of your measuring tools, gages, torque wrenches, masters, CMMs, surface plates and many other measuring instruments.
