)-- Physical Testing Company Increases Capacity & Services Offered
Bcomtesting, physical testing service provider to the composites and plastics industries, announced an expansion of capabilities and services today.
Bcomtesting has increased its testing capabilities with the addition of a 1,000-lb electromechancial frame and a 5,000-lb servo hydraulic fatigue rated Instron® 8872 table top frame. These additions, combined with new fixtures and attachments, give Bcomtesting five testing frames (three electromechanical and two servo-hydraulics) while increasing the company’s overall static capacity up to 68,000 lbs.
This equipment expansion will increase Bcomtesting’s overall capacity. In turn, this capacity increase will make it possible for Bcomtesting to continue delivering leading turnaround times in the industries they serve. Additionally, Bcomtesting now provides even better faster turnaround for fatigue and standard testing to customers within the composites and other industries.
