We make sure it works, then we make sure again.
No investment casting manufacturer strives for a zero-percent defect rate like Precision Castings of Tennessee, which is why we offer a host of metallurgical testing and failure analysis services. By determining weaknesses in metal parts, our metallurgical testing laboratory can help reduce manufacturing costs, identify weight reduction opportunities, and improve product safety.
In addition to quality control, our metallurgical testing engineers can identify causes for product failure, provide forensic evidence for industrial accident investigation, and determine the source of equipment fatigue.
Our metallurgical testing laboratory is equipped to handle:
- stress testing
- tensile testing
- impact testing
- hardness testing
- fatigue & compression testing
Our machining capabilities allow us to fabricate testing specimens from various alloys at atmospheric conditions, including aluminum, carbon steel, low alloy steel, stainless steel, bronze, brass, copper, and exotic alloys.
We commonly provide metallurgical testing for a wide variety of industries, including automotive, optical instrumentation, food processing, medical, defense, textile, pulp & paper, printing, shipbuilding, and mining.
