Mechanical tests on metal samples

CRM Group makes intensive use of metallographic analyses to identify microstructures on the bulk or on the surface of solid samples (metals, lumpy materials, etc), including powders and fine-grained materials.

The equipment at CRM Group includes:

  • Sampling and machining tools to prepare metal samples in accordance with test requirements or standards.
  • The necessary devices to carry-out comprehensive mechanical tests for a wide range of metals, shapes and applications. Most of these tests are performed according to ISO standards and some are covered by BELAC accreditation.
