Mechanical Testing
Spectro provides a comprehensive and exhaustive range of mechanical testing services, which is an extremely important step in the final evaluation of various mechanical properties. The test specimens can be imagined as specialized engineering components in which a known stress or strain state is applied and the material properties are inferred from the resulting mechanical response. Test specimens are prepared for metallic and non-metallic materials according to the accepted national and international test protocols like IS, ASTM, BS etc.

The Mechanical properties of a material reflect its response to external forces. Mechanical engineering tests are performed to quantitatively determine various mechanical properties of materials. Measuring the mechanical properties/strength of materials (Raw materials & Finished products) is of paramount importance while deciding about their potential performance, and also indicates whether there are inherent flaws in their designs. Important Mechanical properties include Strength (Tensile, Yield & Tear), Hardness, Impact resistance, Fatigue resistance, ductility, toughness, brittleness, etc. Knowledge of such properties gives a fundamental idea about the performance of the test materials under a wide variety of actual-use conditions and environments, and hence guides the user of the product about its suitability which eventually helps in the commercial decision-making process. The results of Mechanical tests are used for two primary purposes: (1) Engineering Design & Development/Construction, and 2) Quality Control, either by the product manufacturer to verify the process used or by the end user to confirm the conformity of the test material to the relevant specifications.

Spectro has a fully equipped and competent in-house Mechanical Testing Facility to provide precise, reproducible and reliable determination of various Mechanical tests like Tensile strength, Compressive strength, Bend/re-bend test, Impact test (Charpy), Flattening test, Hardness test, weldability and tests of various other mechanical and engineering properties. Spectro also specializes in Proof Stress test and Tensile test at elevated temperatures. Tests are meticulously conducted as per various national and international standards like IS, ASTM, BS, ISO, etc. or client-specified standards, and the compliance of test items to various specifications is properly and accurately decided.

Spectro can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of maximum known elements in the periodic table is it metals, non-metals or alloys. We are using both traditional techniques, i.e. wet methods as well as instrumental methods for conducting the metal & alloy testing. The laboratory possesses modern and sophisticated instrument like Spark OES. The technique offers the advantage of multi-element analysis with very high Sensitivity/low detection limit for all the elements. We are the first laboratory in India to introduce the use of spark optical emission spectrometer (Spark OES) techniques for analysis of almost all the known metals in the solid form. This method has largest capability in our country to analyze any metal i.e. Ferrous, Non-ferrous or precious Metals. 
Other instruments also available with us (ICP-OES, XRF besides AAS) for analyze Metal & its alloy. Except AAS other instruments also offer the advantage of multiple-element analysis like Spark OES.
The Spark OES technique operates on a robust reliable technology, and the same time it is the mostly used technique in the analysis of all kinds of metals & their alloys in the solid form. This technique is so popular because of extremely speedy analysis of almost all the unknown elements with high accuracy. The two primary reasons behind the unparalleled efficiency of Spark OES are minimal sample preparation time (no sample dissolution is required) and extremely high sample-analysis throughput (approximately 300-400 samples per day). To achieve repeatable & reliable results by Spark OES, it is imperative to have substantial quantities of Reference materials covering a wide range of concentrations which are required to calibrate the instrument. Spectro has a huge range of Certified Reference Material (CRM) & Standard Reference Material (SRM) to cover the entire spectrum of metals & its alloys.  
Those samples which cannot be analyzed by Spark OES for elemental composition are analyzed by XRF or by ICP-OES Spectrometer. The XRF spectrometer has the capability to analyze elements from sodium to uranium in the periodic table, while the ICP can analyze all those sample forms and many other elements not possible by the above-mentioned techniques. All precious and rare metals are now possible to be analyzed by these techniques. Hazardous/toxic elements and restricted substances, like Pb, Cd, Hg and total Cr are analyzed by the aforementioned techniques in samples like plastics, toys and rubbers, in order to see their compliance with various national and international regulatory authorities.
