In our materials laboratory we don’t speculate

Our experts work together with you to ensure that your product meet your quality needs and comply with industry standards. Pull a sample until it breaks, hit it with 450J of energy and see how it behaves, measure porosity, and characterize indications. This is where we put your material to the test with standardized quality assurance. We support you from concept to qualified component, welcome to our Materials Laboratory.
Mechanical Testing

Ensure the quality of you printed parts and material through standardised and flexible testing. In our materials lab we offer: 

  • Tensile testing
  • Impact testing
  • Hardness
Material development and analysis

Develop material for your specific requirements together with us. Our experienced team can help you with printing, analysis, and evaluation.

  • AM process parameter development
  • Sample preparation
  • Microscopy examination
  • Porosity measurement
  • Surface roughness

No matter where in the process you may be, we support in areas covering the whole Additive Manufacturing process to ensure your quality needs.

  • Quality assurance
  • Component qualification
  • Material qualification
  • Lab and process development
  • 3D scan
  • Material selection support
  • Benchmarking
  • Trainings

Equipment for analysis and quality control

Light Optical Microscopy

To evaluate the microstructure and porosity level of your additively printed material we use the LV150N light optical microscope from Nikon. The microscope is equipped with a motorized XYZ table and differential interference contrast to allow for broader and deeper analyses.

  • Microstructure analysis
  • Porosity measurement
  • Crack measurement
  • Surface roughness of cross sections

To prepare our samples for light optical microscopy we use preparation equipment from Struers.

3D Scanner

The portable Nikon Modelmaker H120 3D scanner and MCAx20+ arm with a scan range of 2 metres, provides insights to the dimensions of your part and how it compares to the CAD file. With the accuracy of 28 µm, we can help you with reverse engineering and simulation before your print.

  • Quality control
  • Reverse engineering
  • Input for simulations

Mechanical testing equipment

Tensile testing

Our electromechanical test rig 5892 from Instron with the capacity of 100 kN is equipped with extensometer and multiple gripping options to suit your test specimen design. 

We offer standardised testing at room temperature for the most commonly used standards and your specific requirements. 


Impact testing

The 450J pendelum on our Instron 450MPX impact test rig enables testing of the toughest metals. The high-end Instron software will help you understand the perfomance of your material.

We offer Charpy V impact testing according to EN-ISO 148-1:2016.
Hardness testing

With the Struers Duramin-40 AC2 Vickers hardness tester, you can measure the hardness of the material through single points or advanced patterns, with loads between 100g and 10kg. 

We customise the testing according to your specification, as well as offer standardised Vickers hardness testing according to ISO 6507-1:2018.
