Testing of metals

Metals are, and will remain, important construction materials worldwide. A high percentage of steel materials can be recycled many times over and are therefore considered sustainable. Understanding their material characteristics is essential for design engineers and people who use these materials. Material characteristics are obtained from mechanical-technological materials testing, whereby materials testing machines load the materials until they fail. Testing machines from the ZwickRoell Group ensure reproducible and reliable test results based on internationally standardized test methods.

Metal standards
ASTM and ISO standards for materials testing on metals, including ISO 6892-1 / ASTM E8, ISO 6892-2 / ASTM E21, ISO 148-1 / ASTM E399, hardness testing standards, and more,
Here you will find an overview of the most important test standards in the metals industry. Learn more from our industry experts about the test objectives and respective requirements for testing systems to ensure standard compliant performance.
