1.TEST OF TRACTION, COMPRESSION TO FOLD THE MATERIAL

Our force measuring system, based on advanced technology, can measure traction and compression up to 1000 KN. These test enable us to ascertain both the tensile and compressed strength of the material.

By means of different diameters of punches and separation rollers, it is possible to determine the condition of the bent material and the welded joints.

2. HARDNESS

SCI can perform tests to determine the hardness of a material, usisng three methods: Rockwell, Brinell and Vickers.

3. BENDING SHOCK (RESILIENCE)

Charpy impact testing is used to ascertain the toughness and energy absorbed by a particular material at different temperatures, ranging from room temperature to –196° C. The Charpy impact is performed according to ASTM E-23 and EN-ISO-148-1 standards.

THE EQUIPMENT THAT SCI HAS TO PERFORM THESE TESTS:

SCI uses the very latest technology to perform these tests which ascertain the capabilites of various materials. The technology includes:

  • Fully equipped machine workshop.
  • Equipment required for testing tension, compression and bending.

  • Rockwell hardness tester:

    Brinell and Vickers.

  • Charpy pendulums.
  • Furnaces and muffles.

SECTORS TO BE ADDRESSED:
