Tensile testing is designed to determine the maximum tensile strength of your material. They’re 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”. After the tensile test, you’ll receive a test report that includes the ultimate tensile strength, yield point, elongation, and reduction of area. Tensile tests are performed to common international standards such as ASTM A370 and ASTM E8/E8M.
At Titan, we perform tensile testing to ASTM E8 for various metals including steel, stainless steel, cast iron, copper, and aluminum. We serve customers in the forging, casting, hot wrought, cold drawn, and machining industries. After testing, we can also tell you whether the results meet common or custom specifications. Titan also has one of the quickest standard turnaround times in the industry.
