Bend Testing

After bending we can visually inspect for discontinuities which open up during bend testing. These indications may not be apparent till the material is put under load and inspected for discontinuities. The three-point bend system is accepted and used throughout industry to perform bend tests. Our weld engineers are proficient in the weld codes, such as ASME, ASM and API. We specialize in reviewing your specifications to meet your process needs.
