AW Inspection Services carry out all mechanical testing and metallurgical examinations at a UKAS accredited laboratory. We’re able to service a wide range of industries across Somerset and the South West of England; including Taunton, Bridgwater, Bristol and Exeter.

Mechanical testing is used to determine whether a material, or a part is suitable for its intended application and reveals the properties of a material under dynamic or static force. Designed to ensure that materials are suitable for their intended applications, mechanical testing and metallurgical examinations includes methods such as: impact resistance, fracture toughness, compression strength, tensile strength and elongation, stress rupture, fatigue limits and hardness.
