In-house UKAS Testing

Our new and recently extended UKAS accredited test house, known as the Smiths Innovation Centre, is , we believe, unique to stockholders in the UK. Critically, we can now do tests in house that are capable of reducing our customers' lead time to their customer by up to 4 weeks- a valuable advantage.

These tests now include tensile tests at different temperatures, charpy impact testing down to minus 60 degrees C , corrosion testing, microstructural examination, conductivity testing, ferrite measurement, chemical analysis and Brinell, Vickers and Rockwell hardness tests.

A need for improved standards

The Gulf of Mexico disaster has heightened awareness of the quality and performance required to make the industry safe - this has resulted in a necessity for the industry to tighten standards even further. Smiths Advanced Metals embraces the challenge to introduce ever more exacting requirements, confident of its commitment to the highest standards of service, testing and quality, all under one roof.
