Testing Capabilities



Our Quality Assurance laboratory has state-of-art equipment including: 
• *NEW* Salt Spray Testing - 300 series stainless screws coated with black oxide in accordance with MIL-DTL-13924D require salt spray testing. 
• Tensile Test – tests the tension of a material to determine how the material will react to forces being applied in tension.
• Rockwell Hardness Test – measures hardness based on the net increase in depth of impression as a load is applied.
• Micro-Hardness Test – measures indentations using precision microscopes to an accuracy of ±0.5 micrometers.
• Johnson  Gage – measures and verifies pitch & functional thread diameters using variable data
• Shear Test – tests strength to determine the load at which a part would yield when sheared between two metal edges.
• Metallurgical Analysis – analyzes a metal’s heat treatment condition, microstructure, formation process and whether it conforms to necessary specifications.
• Tesa Scan – scans for dimensional analysis accurate to .00001”.
• Torque Test – monitors and controls the rotational torque and angle of a part.
• Drive Recess Torque Quality Conformance Test – determines the torque capability of a fastener's driving recess
• Magnetic Permeability Test – measures low-level magnetic permeability and field strength.
