Tensile Testing

Applied Technical Services offers a broad range of tensile testing capabilities. Our mechanical testing division employs various methods and equipment to determine the tensile properties of product design materials as required in their product specifications.
Our Tensile Testing Capabilities

The ATS Tensile Testing Lab performs methods to their relevant standards — measuring the test material’s various tensile properties and determining whether these performance traits are appropriate for the product’s intended use by consulting its design specifications. Depending on the client’s needs, our tensile testing process may report measurements for any or all of the following: tensile strength, yield strength, percent elongation, and reduction of area.
