The testing of metal materials, metal products and manufacturing processes constitutes one of IMK’s basic key services. Testing is largely carried out by the Laboratory for metal structures (OE LKK), which employs specialised personnel and all essential equipment required to perform mechanical (destructive), non-destructive, metallographic investigations and loading tests. The laboratory works largely in collaboration with business partners working in the civil engineering, metallurgy, energy and petrochemicals.

Laboratory services perform the following tests and investigations, grouped as:

  • mechanical testing and loading test,
  • non-destructive testing (NDT),
  • metallographic investigation,
  • corrosion and abrasion tests.

Certificates and Accreditation

Under the frame of the IMK quality management system, the laboratory is certified according to ISO 9001. In addition the laboratory is also accredited according to the SIST EN ISO/IEC 17025 (General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories).
