Fatigue Testing Services

ATS provides fatigue testing services to determine the integrity of critical components and structures. We serve a variety of industries and clients with speed and discretion.
Fatigue begins when a crack forms due to fluctuating stress, typically near the surface. Over time, additional cracks propagate until the rest of the material cannot endure the stress, and the item fractures. However, the propagated cracks may not be visible until an item is near failure. When vulnerabilities and microcracks remain undetected, the effects can be dire.
Our Fatigue Tests

Fatigue tests identify weaknesses in materials so manufacturers and vendors can identify product defects before material fatigue becomes a liability. Fatigue testing uncovers vital information about a sample’s projected life and durability. Clients often use our analyses to identify the following about a chosen material:

ATS offers multiple fatigue testing services to manufacturers, vendors, and end-users. Our expert technicians can test a material sample or perform a full-scale test on a product or structure. Clients may choose from a selection of services, such as:
