Exova will use the facility to conduct mechanical tensile testing on ferrous and non-ferrous cast materials and components in a temperature controlled environment. As well as a 100kN load capacity dual column frame for conducting tensile testing, the facility will feature a dedicated machining section, housing CNC lathes and milling machines for the preparation of tensile specimens from separately cast and in-cast parts. The testing capability will be accredited to ISO 17025, a recognized and independently audited laboratory quality standard.
