As the popular 80’s song goes….“We are Li-ving in a Material World”. But at Modern Testing Labs it’s not about money. It’s about delivering services to ensure material standards are met, problems are solved and failures are understood in order to prevent reoccurrence. Materials are the foundation for just about everything, from buildings and transportation to home appliances, smart phones, and computers, even health care. Materials allow our society as we know it to operate. Using materials to our advantage requires an understanding of them. Modern’s Metallurgical Services Department employs contemporary technology and analytical techniques such as optical light microscopy, Zoom Sterography, Microhardness Testing, Scanning Electron Microscopy, to name a few.

Modern Industries Material Testing Laboratory 

 

For a brief second, consider all the various metal components and structures you encounter in daily life. Buildings, transportation, home appliances, smartphones, and computers allow society as we know it to operate efficiently. Now, imagine all the critical internal and external metal components required to fabricate those essential pieces of technology. Comprehensive material testing to examine the microstructure or mechanical properties of metallic materials is critical to understanding the eventual ideal material selection and the overall quality of finished products. Who ensures that those materials meet the standards and requirements necessary for the applications? We do. 

Modern Industries’ Metallurgical Testing Laboratory provides both routine testing and complex multi-factor research projects backed by state-of-the-art technical service to North American and International clients. Our full-scope lab is comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of materials scientists, mechanical engineers, and chemists who can undertake an extensive range of projects and are intimately familiar with various customer requirements and industry specifications. Not only do we certify that materials meet specification requirements, but we also assist in problem-solving and technical discussion when materials or components fail or do not meet required standards. 

Laboratory material testing services at Modern Industries offer competitive turnaround times with expedited programs also available upon request. Modern Industries is proud to provide exceptional and responsive customer service with personal communication through email and direct phone calls. Get in touch with our Customer Service team today to schedule a pickup! Our route covers Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York as well as Canada.

 

NADCAP Accredited & ITAR Registered Laboratory Services

 

Modern Industries material testing laboratory is NADCAP Accredited and can be trusted to perform high-quality and consistent testing procedures.
