Materials Testing Laboratory
MAINTAINING THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF QUALITY CONTROL
AND QUALITY ASSURANCE POSSIBLE.
Your reputation, profitability and safety record hinge on your ability to deliver high-quality products, which is why our goal is to help you maintain the highest levels of quality control and quality assurance possible.
Our materials and metrology laboratory uses advanced, non-invasive technologies that are currently unavailable anywhere else in Canada. These technologies allow you to efficiently identify hidden failure points in all your metal parts and materials—which, in turn, leads to enhanced product performance and vastly reduced deficiencies, breakdowns and recalls.
MECHANICAL & PHYSICAL TESTING
To make sure a material can perform under stress, you need to verify its physical and mechanical properties. At Burloak, we offer a variety of testing capabilities to help you in this endeavour—including tensile, fatigue, Archimedes density and Rockwell hardness testing.
METALLOGRAPHY & MICROSTRUCTURE ANALYSIS
We can help you determine whether a material has been processed correctly—a key factor in product reliability—through microstructure analyses such as grain size, phase analysis, inclusion analysis and alpha case measurements.
Some components are too important to fail, particularly if such failures could result in a significant hazard or economic loss. We can help confirm the safety of such components through micro-computed tomography (CT), coordinate measuring machines and laser scanning.
Powder testing can offer invaluable insight into the various properties of a material, helping to guide a product’s design. We can make sure your projects meet their performance criteria by offering powder sampling, flow rate, powder tap density, powder apparent density, particle size analysis, chemistry (powder and bulk), hall and carney flowability testing.
