Tensile Testing

Tensile testing is one of the most common methods in mechanical testing. The method is used to characterize the strength properties of a material.

We can perform tensile tests up to a test force of 600,000 N (approx. 60 tonnes) where the breaking limit, yield strength, elongation and contraction can be evaluated.

In our Mechanical Workshop, the test rods are manufactured for tensile testing.

Typical applications:

  • Testing of rebar, up to 32 mm
  • Testing of screw connections
  • Determination of yield strength, elongation at break and area reduction on standardized test rods.

Scope of Accreditation

  • SS-EN ISO 6892-1
  • SS-EN ISO 15630-2
  • ASTM E8
  • ASTM E8M

Tensile tester Quasar kN 600

Our new tester from Galdabini complements our previous tensile tester, which enables us to handle larger volumes of testing.
