For years now, Casal Aluminium has stood out for its expertise and professionalism in the field of aluminium processing. In addition to the supply of products in this metal alloy, the company is also involved in various types of machining.

These also include mechanical testing, the characteristics and importance of which we will see, since it serves to ensure the highest quality and reliability of aluminium products.

Why mechanical testing is crucial: let's find out together

Mechanical testing is a crucial type of processing in order to accurately assess the physical and mechanical characteristics of a material such as, for example, aluminium.

Among the factors that are taken into account during this testing are, for example, the level of hardness, strength and toughness. With regard, again specifically, to aluminium, it is crucial to ensure that this metal alloy complies with the required characteristics to guarantee maximum safety and durability of the finished products.

Casal Aluminium’s mechanical testing therefore checks that the aluminium used is of high quality and meets the required standards.

The different types of mechanical tests: here are the most important ones

Mechanical tests are of various kinds. These include the tensile test, the compression test, the torsion test and, finally, the hardness test.

When it comes to aluminium processing, the most valuable mechanical tests are the tensile test and the hardness test, as they allow the quality of the material’s strength to be assessed very precisely and reliably.

Casal Aluminium offers this type of processing to its customers, giving them the opportunity to check the quality of the aluminium used in specific products.

What is the mechanical strength test and why do it?

Among the various mechanical tests, this is one of the most important because it measures the force required to cause the part to yield and subsequently break.

The test consists of applying increasing force to the aluminium bar at a specific point on the workpiece until it breaks. This test is essential to understand how much force is required to break a part and thus establish its ability to withstand external stress when delivered to the customer.

With these guarantees, the customer can be sure of using an aluminium profile that can withstand the workload it will be subjected to.

What does the tensile test consist of and what are its characteristics?

One of the most common mechanical tests for assessing the quality of aluminium is the tensile test, which allows its strength to be checked.

During this type of test, in fact, the metal alloy is subjected to a precise tensile force, which increases more and more until it reaches the so-called breaking point. This makes it possible to determine what the actual maximum strength of aluminium is, and to understand its real capacity to withstand mechanical stress.

Casal Aluminium uses state-of-the-art systems to carry out these tests to assure its customers that the products possess the required characteristics.

Hardness test peculiarities: what is this test used for?

Compared to the tensile test, the hardness test is another mechanical test which, however, serves to measure the hardness of the material, in this case aluminium.

During machining, a certain force is applied to a precise point on the surface of the material. This is used to measure the depth of the impression left by the machine. Thanks to this test, therefore, it is possible to determine the hardness of aluminium and its resistance to deformation and wear with extreme precision.

Casal Aluminium has been committed to the highest quality for years

For several years now, Casal Aluminium has placed great emphasis on the quality of the products manufactured and the workmanship offered to its customers.

As far as mechanical testing specifically is concerned, the company only uses the latest software, techniques and instrumentation, which allow for rigorous quality control and maximum reliability.

Casal Aluminium is well aware of how mechanical testing is a fundamentally important tool in assessing the quality of aluminium used to make products and structures. Thanks to the accuracy of tests, however, it is possible to ensure compliance with the specific regulations in this field, so that high quality standards can be met.

As well as using state-of-the-art equipment, the company has a highly qualified team of technicians to perform mechanical tests.
