Mechanical Testing

Within the mech­an­ical test­ing group of AAC we can determ­ine the follow­ing mech­an­ical prop­er­ties of metal­lic, poly­meric, ceramic and compos­ite mater­i­als using calib­rated test equip­ment taking into account the terms and condi­tions of the corres­pond­ing stand­ard (DIN, ASTM, EN, ISO,...). Beside stand­ard mech­an­ical tests, costumer defined compon­ent tests can be performed.
