Staying Ahead of the Technology Curve
The medical field is rapidly evolving with new breakthroughs in technology and improvements to medical materials, devices and implants. What doesn’t change is the need for the highest quality and most reliable products to ensure performance, durability and long-term reliability. The services provided by our material testing and calibration lab help make that happen.
As a material testing lab, Laboratory Testing Inc. is a major supplier of nondestructive and destructive testing services for leading manufacturers in the medical industry. By partnering with these manufacturers, LTI’s testing and certifications have become an essential part of their quality programs and have provided assurance that the materials going into their products will hold up to expectations.
LTI offers material testing and inspections services for metals and polymers. We provide information customers need for product development, material verification, production control and other important business decisions including:
- Material composition & identification
- Mechanical properties
- Defects & discontinuities
- Susceptibility to corrosion
LTI Metrology, our calibration lab, can validate the output of measuring tools, gauges and other instruments that help support production and quality control. For convenience you can send instruments to our full-service calibration lab or schedule on-site service with our technicians.
