The mechanical test laboratory COFRAC, from Cetim-Cermat, has the experience and equipments necessary for monitoring and implementing tests of mechanical strength.
To meet the needs of our partners, our test laboratory performs mechanical tensile, hardness, resilience, shear, bending and tearing tests.
The mechanical test laboratory of the Cetim-Cermat is equipped with a pendulum of 300J to perform resilience tests.The method consists of make a U or V-shaped notch in the middle of the specimen and the breaking it suddenly with the pendulum.
The bending test consists in applying a lateral force on a workpiece which is equipped with a strain gauge.
