About Mechanical Testing

For many products used today, common threats are injuries caused by sharp-edge parts, bruises and falls, to name a few. On the one hand, DEKRA checks whether products can withstand mechanical stresses during daily use and on the other whether they have been constructed in such a way that they can be safely used. This includes a review of the complete user documentation, including the instruction manuals and safety regulations. DEKRA supports research into relevant standards as well as the compilation of technical documentation, risk assessments and standards interpretation.

DEKRA’s mechanical testing experts use a range of mechanical testing methods for research and development purposes, with mechanical testing being an essential element of quality assurance across numerous manufacturing sectors. Whether it is for your material characterization or weld testing needs, metals or other materials. DEKRA provides accredited testing to most relevant industry standards both ISO, ASTM and ASME.
