A crucial step in the product development process is evaluating a product physically and mechanically. Vibration, shock stresses, and strain are examples of applied physical forces that might show a material's inelastic behavior. Product developers can better comprehend their creations through mechanical testing, find flaws, and build more reliable quality control.
Services for mechanical testing
A variety of strength tests are used in mechanical testing to assess a material or component’s compatibility for the intended use. It gauges properties like elongation, hardness, fracture toughness, impact resistance, stress fracture, and fatigue limit.
Infinita Lab is capable of conducting mechanical testing independently or in conjunction with environmental stimuli, such as:
Organizations must be aware of the circumstances that will cause structural failure in components and reduce their functionality.
Depending on the material’s elastic properties, excessive deformation might be either elastic or inelastic. Under loading conditions of stable equilibrium, such as the extreme deflection of a steel beam, excessive elastic deformation may take place. The buckling of a column or brittle fracture is another example of this type of failure that may occur under the loading situation of unstable equilibrium. The plastic qualities of the material, including ultimate tensile strength, strain hardening, and hardness, determine excessive inelastic deformation. Under load circumstances that result in fatigue, ductile fracture, and creep, this failure may happen. Alternating loads or strains can trigger crack initiation and generate a failure type known as a fracture. Defects in the material or stress-raising factors might accelerate the crack’s propagation.
Wear: At the contact interfaces of load-bearing components, mechanical wear can be seen. Mechanical testing can be used to characterize material qualities or certify the safety and integrity of finished products. Regarding a material or component’s appropriateness for its intended application, mechanical testing offers useful information. Additionally, mechanical testing can improve the effectiveness and efficiency of your design process. Mechanical testing also helps the quality, security, and creativity of products.

There are various sorts of mechanical testing that materials and products may go through to ensure they work as intended:
Testing for fatigue — Depending on the source, between 50 and 90 percent of all mechanical failures are caused by fatigue. The word “fatigue testing” refers to a testing procedure used on components and goods to identify the localized and progressive structural damage that results from cyclical loading on a material. This test can be carried out at several stages of the manufacturing process, including during raw material testing.
The goal is to create a fatigue strength curve that shows how the material holds up under cyclic loading at various stress levels. Axial, torsional, high-cycle, low-cycle, bending, rotating, shear, proof load and multiple degrees of freedom are among the fatigue testing methods we can use.
Tensile testing: This kind of mechanical testing gauges the amount of pressure needed to stretch a rope, wire, or beam until it snaps. Tensile strength is a crucial topic in mechanical engineering, structural engineering, and material science. It is the highest amount of tensile stress that an object can bear before failing. A sample is subjected to uniaxial tension during tensile testing until it breaks.
Axial tensile testing, weld tensile testing, wedge tensile testing, castings tensile testing, enhanced temperature tensile testing, and tensile testing for machined specimens are among Infinita Lab’s tensile testing capabilities. Many businesses use failure theories, tensile test results, and other data to forecast component failure under more widespread stress situations.
Testing for hardness is a method that is frequently used to check the conformity of heat-treated surfaces and to determine how resistant a solid is to various types of shape change or penetration when a force is applied to the material surface.
Microindentation hardness testing, often known as microhardness testing, is one of the most popular techniques. The technique involves impressing a precise diamond indenter into the material under a variety of stresses. The testing expert measures the impression length and computes the hardness value using the data and test load. Rockwell standard testing, Rockwell superficial testing, and Brinell hardness testing are other hardness testing techniques.
Compression testing is a method for analyzing how materials respond to compressive loads to identify a material’s elastic limit, proportional limit, yield point, yield strength, and compressive strength (if applicable). The specimen is loaded between two plates by the test engineer, who then applies force to the specimen by moving the crossheads together.
Fracture mechanics: The eventual cracking of machine parts is inevitable. Fracture mechanics aid in assessing the seriousness of a fault and identifying when it becomes an issue. Many sectors demand that manufacturers collect empirical data on a material’s capacity to withstand cracking and crack expansion. Companies frequently use fracture testing to anticipate the service life of items and create maintenance schedules.
Infinita Lab provides a wide selection of mechanical testing. With a global network, Infinita Lab can handle specialized testing requirements or handle conventional testing requests.
