April 27, 2022

Elmet Technologies Inc, Lewiston, Maine, USA, reports that it has expanded the scope of its accredited practices at its analytical laboratory, having gained A2LA-accreditation for technical competence in the field of mechanical testing.

In addition to the A2LA-accreditation, this lab is also accredited in accordance with the recognised International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2017 General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. This demonstrates technical competence for a defined scope and the operation of a laboratory quality management system.

The lab’s accredited practices have included tensile testing, density testing, hardness testing (Rockwell and Vickers microhardness), as well as microstructure analysis and grain size measurements. Practices now covered by the ISO 17025 scope include chemical composition analyses using optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) and carbon & gas analysis in metals using combustion analysis.

Certifications are available to view in full here.
