- All services are performed according to industry standards and our own stringent procedures.
- LTI is ISO/IEC 17025 certified and accredited by PRI/Nadcap in materials and nondestructive testing and by A2LA for calibration, dimensional inspection and materials testing services.
Although our materials testing specialty is metals and alloys, we also offer analytical testing services for powdered metals, ores, ferroalloys, composites, polymers and ceramics. Test results are provided in detailed Certified Test Reports to meet our customers’ quality assurance needs and to answer questions about material characteristics and properties, material composition, flaws and inconsistencies and corrosion resistance.
Nondestructive Testing (NDT)
Certified NDT specialists perform a wide-range of nondestructive testing services to provide customers with information about surface and subsurface inconsistencies, flaws and weaknesses without damaging their test material. Our equipment has the capacity to handle tubing, pipe, barstock, castings and other products of almost any size and shape. The full-service NDT lab performs ultrasonic, magnetic particle, liquid penetrant, X-ray, hydrostatic pressure and visual inspection services. All testing results are documented for customers in easy-to-read Certified Test Reports.
- X-ray Inspection
- Ultrasonic Testing
- Hydrostatic Pressure Testing
- Liquid Penetrant Testing
- Magnetic Particle Inspection
- Visual Inspection
When metal components fail to perform as expected, our materials engineers can help you understand the reason why. Testing and analysis will help them get to the root of the problem. You’ll receive a comprehensive failure analysis report listing all findings from our failure investigation and our recommendations for preventing a recurrence.
For convenience, let our machinists prepare high quality, economical specimens for your testing from metals and many plastics. We strictly adhere to specified industry standards and customer specifications for all specimen machining.
Third-party and first-article inspections of surface dimensions, internal and external threads, and special features are performed on machined products, parts and fasteners to verify measurements using CMMs and conventional methods. Your dimensional inspection results will be provided in a comprehensive certified report.
Our calibration laboratory calibrates all types of masters, gages and measuring tools to verify that the items meet their performance specifications. Many additional instruments are calibrated on-site including surface plates, microscopes, balances, ovens, temperature controllers, optical comparators and more. Repairs, replacement parts and new instruments are also provided. All calibration services are performed with reliable accuracy and timely turnaround. Results are NIST-traceable and reported in detailed Calibration Certificates.
