Bcomtesting has increased its testing capabilities with the addition of a 1000-lb electromechancial frame and a 5000-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.

According to Bcomtesting president Bruno Belanger, the company now provides even better faster turnaround for fatigue and standard testing to customers within the composites and other industries.

“We take great pride in providing unmatched turnaround times for our customers,” he explains. “Even during periods when we face a high volume of work, we believe it is imperative to maintain those industry-leading turnaround times. The additon of this new equipment does that for us while also adding some new capabilities.”

Based in Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA, Bcomtesting evaluates mechanical and physical properties of composites and plastics for both fabricators and suppliers in these industries.
