Our range of services

We offer tests on the mechanical characteristics of materials, such as:

  • metal hardness in accordance with Vickers or Micro Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell and Knoop methods
  • rubber and plastic hardness in accordance with the IRHD, Shore and Micro Shore methods
  • automated measurement options for larger sample quantities or multiple points on a single sample
  • weld hardness and depth of hardened layers
  • extensive portfolio of sample fastening accessories
  • option to pre-temper samples in a temperature or environmental chamber
  • measurements with real-time test recording, including statistical results
  • inspection and documentation of samples under a microscope upon request after test completion

Our laboratories are equipped with durometers made by Innovatest and Heinrich Bareiss. But we can also provide further equipment to meet customer requirements.


Compliance with applicable standards

Our laboratory complies with various standards, including:

  • ČSN EN ISO 6506
  • ČSN EN ISO 6507
  • ČSN EN ISO 6508

  • ČSN EN ISO 868
  • ČSN ISO 48

Because there are countless regulations and standards for testing materials, all the standards required for the customer’s tests must be carefully studied.

We have access to a portal with the corresponding standards and can download them. All we require from you is the standard’s number.


How do we do it?

It’s easy to try us! Just follow these simple instructions:

  1. Submit your test requirements to us (for example, using our inquiry form).
  2. We strive to conduct your tests using the most appropriate methods. This is why our technician will explore all your requirements and  contact you within 24 hours with additional questions or recommendations in case you are not completely sure about your inquiry.
  3. After clarifying your needs in detail, we will prepare a quote including information about the earliest possible testing date.

  5. We will conduct the required tests.
  6. After your tests have been completed, we will store your samples until you can personally collect them, or we will send them back to you.
  7. We usually prepare the corresponding test protocol within 48 hours of completed testing.


Test protocol

The results of every test we conduct are output as a test protocol that contains the following data:

  • information about the tested sample
  • test implementation location and time
  • test description
  • device identification
  • photo documentation of samples before and after testing
  • real-time graphical records of testing
  • protocol appendixes, for example measurement statistics

We can prepare the protocol for you in either Czech or English.


Why should you test with us?

There are many reasons for testing with us, the most important being:

  • Expertise in the field
    Our technicians have many years of experience. They can recommend the most suitable testing method for your samples. But if you know exactly what you want and how to test, we will be your partner and not delay you with additional questions.
  • Flexibility
    Even though we have an extensive portfolio of devices, we understand that quality testing keeps increasing its demands on individual products. Because of our close relationships with testing technology manufacturers and device users, we are able to provide even equipment that we do not currently own.
  • Reliability
    We strive to make sure that you can rely on our word as well as our devices, therefore, all our equipment are regularly calibrated by an accredited laboratory and service by an authorized service company. Since we provide these services in house, we can respond to unexpected complications almost immediately.
  • Personal approach
    We treat every single customer individually. At the beginning of each contract there is always an understanding of your needs and requirements. We will do our best to meet all your requests.
