Grand Steel Proudly Announces New On-Site Steel Testing Laboratory

The team at Grand Steel is committed to offering the industry’s highest quality flat, cold, and hot-rolled steel. To make good on this commitment, we are proud to announce the opening of our new, on-site steel testing laboratory. With the ability to provide prompt, extremely accurate metal testing, our testing lab is manned by experienced, well-trained professionals and equipped with the industry’s best metal testing equipment. Offering a range of tests, from flat steel testing to steel chemical analysis, our lab can provide you with the data – and assurances – that you need to run a smooth, profitable operation. In today’s post, we’re going to look at just a few of the tests that we provide.

Hardness testing

We offer hardness testing using the Brinell Sun-Tec Hardness Test Method. Created to test the hardness of steel, it is ideal for materials that are coarse or have a rougher surface. Most importantly, results from this test are 100% guaranteed to be accurate.

Ductility testing

Using an Olsen machine, we are able to test metals for ductility and deep drawing properties. Capable of identifying qualities that cannot be detected with the naked eye, our double Olsen test also tests coating weight, strength, and other properties.

Metal analysis

When you need to know the properties of the metal that you’re working with, Grand Steel can provide thorough analysis using the ARL Fisons 3460 AES. Even better, this machine can help us to find better, more suitable solutions that have a lower potential cost.

At Grand Steel, we are dedicated to offering our customers value. As the leading full-service steel center in the industry, we take great pride in offering high-quality products at cost-efficient prices. Now, we’re happy to offer our customers extensive testing capabilities at our steel testing laboratory.
