Lab Testing Services

Metallurgical Engineering Services works with our clients to meet all their consulting and laboratory testing needs.

Our broad range of lab testing services allows us to offer a one stop shop for failure analysis, non-destructive testing, destructive testing, materials research, and process quality testing.

MES performs mechanical, metallurgical, chemical, environmental, and corrosion testing of metals, polymers, ceramics, and other materials. We also offer welder qualification and weld procedure consulting services. Our laboratory is capable of testing large lot sizes for manufacturing controls and we offer discounted rates for high volume testing. Whether you need a sample tested to a specification or a custom test configuration, our certified experts will guide you to select the best test for your business needs.


Include a state-of-the-art electron beam lab equipped with five Scanning Electron Microscopes. These microscopes provide EDX, Auger, and WDS for composition determination. High magnification digital imaging allows us to identify fracture modes, corrosion, defects, and surface layers. Auger microprobes provide thin film surface element detection and our FTIR units can quickly identify organic contaminants, microscopic particles, and unknown materials. Metallurgical’s optical lab provides metallurgical inspection of microstructures, thermal spray inspection, and corrosion analysis. Our complete mechanical test facilities provide tensile, hardness, bend, fatigue, torsion, fracture toughness, and impact testing.
