PTS has an internal Metallurgical Laboratory (MET LAB) to expedite development programs and to provide quality assurance for standard production processes.

At PTS, we provide interpretation of our results and work with you to evaluate testing data, so that you not only have data, but the knowledge to make rational decisions for your project or business.

Our engineers and metallurgists are trained in various metals.

These are just some of the services we offer:

  • Microstructural assessment
  • Grain size measurement
  • Inclusion Rating
  • Hardness testing (Rockwell)
  • Case depth measurement
  • Microhardness testing (Knoop & Vickers)
  • Weld analysis

Testing is performed per industry standards, including ASTM E3, ASTM E18, ASTM E384, ASTM E112, ASTM E10, ASTM A247, ASTM B487, equivalent ISO standards, and applicable specialized procedures.
