The mechanical tests carried out in SCI meet the regulatory criteria required by the various codes and regulations, both national and international, to determine the different physical properties of materials.
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.
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:
SECTORS TO BE ADDRESSED:
There are a number of production sectors that require this testing and the most common are:
SCI provides rigorous inspection and quality control of the materials used in a wide varied of sectors.
