Testing & Evaluation

CMT boasts a state of the art materials testing and evaluation laboratory

CMT can provide a comprehensive service of test coupon manufacture, metallographic preparation, test and evaluation at its premises in Basingstoke. In addition, it can produce prototype fully-reinforced components, AMC inserts and selectively reinforced sand cast components in hybrid-AMC.

The company has invested heavily in test and evaluation facilities, as part of its commitment to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ for customers wishing to develop AMC-reinforced components. Details of available equipment can be found below.

Of course, equipment is only part of the story. CMT employs highly-qualified material scientists to ensure high-quality composite manufacture, and to conduct testing to determine static material properties. CMT has developed particular expertise in the specification, design and testing of AMC coupons, including coupon geometry and test fixture design. Tests conducted include tensile, compression, shear and flexural. By virtue of these R&D activities, CMT has a world-leading level of understanding of the behaviour and performance of industrial AMC materials.
