Laboratory Services from Engel Metallurgical 

When dealing with metals, industry professionals and legal experts need to know whether materials will perform as expected under stress, as well as where, when, and why materials fail. This information can drastically alter aspects of production, the payout of an insurance claim, or the verdict in a legal case.  

Our metallurgical testing lab helps navigate all these issues. All of Engel Metallurgical’s laboratory services meet exacting government and industry standards for technical competence and photographic documentation. We provide each client with detailed reports summarizing how the materials performed during testing and how well they complied with client specifications.

However, with our accreditation, Engel Metallurgical clients can be certain that our metallurgical testing lab operates with an outstanding quality management system that produces valid results.
