Mechanical Testing Lab for Post-Heat Treatment of Forgings

One of the principal reasons for heat treatment is to change mechanical properties.

Thus it’s critical to have the tools available to evaluate the changes in microstructure and hardness that forecast final mechanical properties.

To provide for a properly heat treated component that yields the metallurgical design criteria, it’s vital to have a competent team of professionals who are adept at leveraging the necessary tools, techniques and technologies.

At ThermTech we leverage our in-house mechanical testing lab for post-heat treatment of forgings.

The mechanical testing services we offer include a full menu of testing & metallurgical consultation.



We have a state-of-the-art Leco Micro-Hardness Tester that’s completely automated, eliminating any error due to measuring hardness impression.

As part of our mechanical testing services, we also offer computerized image analysis for measuring grain size and microstructural elements.


Our mechanical testing lab for post-heat treatment of forgings is oriented toward hardness testing and microstructural analysis.

For testing mechanical properties specifically, we leverage the relationships we have with a number of A2LA accredited labs in the surrounding area. These long-standing partnerships enable us to facilitate and administrate such mechanical testing services.
