Metal is a material which is prepared fresh, fractured or polished, and exhibits a lustrous appearance. Metal is a good conductor of both heat and electricity, when compared to other compounds. Metals are both ductile (can be made into wires) and malleable (can be made into sheets).A metal is usually made up of an alloy such as stainless steel or a chemical element such as iron. There are many compounds and elements classified under the name metal, under high pressures. For e.g.: a non-metal iodine compound becomes into metal at pressure of 140°C. Similarly metals can become non-metal when the atmospheric pressure is reduced.
Metals comprise of 25% Earth’s crust, which are present in various aspects of modern life. In order to check the quality and the working of these metals, there is an equipment used to check it, called as metal testing equipment. Testing equipment’s are used in various fields such as electronic test equipment, electrical testing equipment, and mechanical testing equipment.
Metal testing equipment’s are used to check the viability, stability and the durability of the metals before using it in any industries. Metal is a growing market in the various industries, and hence metal testing equipment is expected to have a high growth in the upcoming years.
Metal Testing Equipment and its Properties:
Metal testing equipment is being used in the recent years. There are various types of metal testing equipment’s available in the market such as, tensile tester, hardness tester, pendulum impact testers, metallography equipment, sample specimen preparation equipment, metal analyzers, sheet metal formability, optical sorting machines, spectroscopy equipment, surface roughness testers, and many others. These new instruments in the metal testing equipment market helps in the measurement of metal, alloys and other metallic compounds during all stages of manufacture.
When the metal testing equipment is made, it has to meet certain standards such as ISO standards, DST, and ASTM. Few metal testing equipment’s are digitally operated whereas most of the metal testing equipment’s are operated manually. There are certain factors which helps in the growth of the metal testing equipment market, such as increasing demand for metals from various industries to make metal testing equipment. Various product launches and new formulations helps in the growth of the metal testing equipment market.
