Tensile Testing

Tensile testing is designed to determine the maximum tensile strength of your material. Tensile tests are performed using a precision-machined sample, sectioned from the submitted part. The bar is fixtured into the test equipment, which pulls on each end until the piece fails. Our tensile testing machine pulls up to 110,000 pounds on samples machined to diameters of 0.505”, 0.252”, and 0.160”.


Test Your Metals

Our tensile testing laboratory performs the following:

  • Steel tensile testing
  • Stainless steel tensile testing
  • Cast iron tensile testing
  • Copper tensile testing
  • Aluminum tensile testing

We serve customers in the forging, casting, hot wrought, cold drawn, and machining industries.

Titan has one of the quickest standard turnaround times in the industry. Request a tensile testing quote today or contact us at our laboratory in Michigan.


Tensile Testing Lab Standards

At Titan, our tensile tests are performed to common international standards such as ASTM A370 and ASTM E8/E8M.


Tensile Testing Lab Report

After the tensile test, you’ll receive a lab report that includes:

  • Ultimate tensile strength
  • Yield point
  • Elongation
  • Reduction of area

We can also tell you whether the results meet common or custom specifications.
