Destructive Testing

Destructive testing is the process of testing and inspecting a part to determine conformance with applicable design and process requirements. Sample testing is used to ensure that a high reliability part or device is produced to the required standards. Destructive Physical Analysis is also used to uncover process defects for troublesome production lot problems. Anderson Shumaker, an ISO 2001 certified company, works to AMS, ASTM, military, and private customer specifications. Some of the destructive tests we offer are:

  • Charpy Impact Testing
  • Tensile Testing
  • Chemical Analysis
  • Metallurgical Evaluation
  • Failure Analysis
  • Hardness Testing
  • Macrostructure Testing
  • Stress Rupture Testing

What Is Non Destructive Testing?

Non-Destructive testing seeks to find material flaws by using various methods to “look into” a part’s structural integrity without changing the part. Common methods for non-destructive testing include: x-ray, ultrasonic, magnetic particle, or liquid penetrant testing.
