Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) of Hatfield, PA has been in business since 1984. The company specializes in metals and materials testing, nondestructive testing, specimen machining, failure analysis, dimensional inspection and calibration services. The lab is accredited by PRI/Nadcap and A2LA and accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 , which complies with and exceeds the requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO 13485. Mechanical, chemical, metallurgical, ultrasonic, magnetic particle, liquid penetrant, X-ray and hydrostatic pressure testing are performed on metals and alloys found in fasteners, tubular products, bars, plates and castings and some plastics. Hardness, tensile and FTIR testing are performed on plastics. The chemistry lab also analyzes powdered metals, ores, ferroalloys, composites, ceramics and polymers. LTI has the capabilities to test metals and other materials for strength and durability, flaws and defects and to determine composition and susceptibility to corrosion. Failure analysis testing can be performed to determine the cause of an unexpected failure in a product or part designed to operate under specific service conditions. A detailed report explains the cause of the failure and can provide information on preventing future occurances. LTI's Machine Shop prepares test specimens for mechanical testing, including charpy V-notch, tensile and stress rupture tests. All services are performed using computerized numerical control (CNC) equipment in accordance with ASTM A-370, ASTM E-8 or ASTM E-23 requirements and customer specifications. The calibration lab, LTI Metrology, provides dimensional, pressure, force, torque, temperature, electrical, mass and vacuum calibrations for hand tools, gages, standards and measuring equipment. LTI also offers field services for surface plates, optical comparators, hardness testers, balances, hand tools, and testing machines and performs oven uniformity surveys. Orders for flow and humidity calibration services can be subcontracted to LTI's audited vendors. As a representative for Glastonbury Southern Gage (GSG), Vermont Gage, Mitutoyo, Boston Centerless and Starrett, LTI can supply new gages, tools and replacement parts. Instrument repairs are available. Information on LTI services and accreditations is provided at http://www.labtesting.com or from sales@labtesting.com.
