Mechanical testsMechanical tests

Determination of the material’s mechanical properties is fundamental for knowing how it behaves and establishing its suitability for the intended application.

This is why conventional mechanical tests are performed very frequently on metals and are included in all product specifications.

Hammer uses top-quality state-of-the-art machinery to conduct these tests.

The 600 kN universal test machine is used to perform tensile tests on round and prismatic specimens using a strain gauge in accordance with EN and ASTM standards.

A tubular furnace and a special strain gaugeare used to conduct tensile tests up to 900°C. The machine is also equipped to carry out flexure, bending and compression tests.

The impact test machine with a 450J scale is used to conduct Charpy resilience tests on KV specimens in accordance with EN and ASTM.

Hammer is also equipped to conduct low-temperature impact tests. The laboratory uses hardness test machines to conduct tests on the main scales (Brinell, Vickers and Rockwell) in accordance with current standards. Hammer is also equipped to carry out creep tests on materials for high temperature applications.
