Anderson Shumaker’s open die forging and ring rolling represents the best in high quality, custom forgings. However, our products wouldn’t be the best if it wasn’t our talented workforce, advanced equipment, and our in-house testing services. Testing is often the final step in manufacturing. It saves our clients time and money by making sure our materials deliver to our promised specifications.
Anderson Shumaker is proud to offer both destructive and non-destructive testing.
What is 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 2001:2015 certified company, works to AMS, ASTM, military, and private customer specifications. Some of the destructive tests we offer include:
- Charpy Impact Testing
- Chemical Analysis
- Failure Analysis
- Hardness Testing
- Macrostructure Testing
- Metallurgical Evaluation
- Stress Rupture Testing
- Tensile 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:
- Liquid penetrant testing
- Magnetic particle
